We are looking for two Consultant Breast Surgeons to join our team in Swansea Bay.
Full time or flexible part time hours will be considered
This post is based in Singleton but may involve clinical commitments on other hospital sites within the Health Board and there is the possibility to participate with the South West Wales Breast Test Wales screening service.
Situated in South Wales, the area surrounding the location boasts beautiful scenery, affordable housing, excellent schools and higher education with good road and rail links to London. In a recent Times article, it ranked 3rd in a list of the "coolest postcodes to move to in 2022"
As a Health Board in Wales we are ambitious for the communities we serve and determined to uphold the fundamental values of the NHS. We are research-driven, working in close partnership with Swansea University, its College of Medicine and the Institute of Life Sciences.
The Swansea Breast Care Unit is based at Singleton Hospital and serves the population of Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot and surrounding area with a catchment of 390, 000. The Breast Surgery team work collaboratively with the Plastic Surgery team providing a joint oncoplastic and breast reconstruction service in both outpatient and in-patient care. A full range of oncoplastic and reconstructive procedures including free flap surgery is offered to our patients. The breast service is supported by a Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) of in-house clinical and medical oncology, pathology, palliative care, radiology, primary, adjuvant and secondary cancer nurse specialists and research team.
The service is undergoing significant expansion in order to provide our population with the development of highly specialised breast diagnostic and surgical services hence we need to increase the size of the surgical team in order to sustain high quality evidence based clinical care.
The post is offered on the amended terms of the Consultant Contract on an optional whole time, 37.5 hours, working week - 10 session basis, although any candidate who is unable for personal reasons to work full time would be eligible to be considered for the post, and is subject to the terms and conditions of service governing the appointment of hospital medical and dental staff in Wales.
Consultants in the Health Board benefit from a 37.5-hour week plus a flexible approach to working practices. We place great emphasis on continuous professional development and will actively support you in the development and achievement of personal goals. There are modern seminar rooms, libraries and video libraries fully equipped with the latest technology on the Singleton, Neath Port Talbot and Morriston Hospital sites.
