Swansea Bay University Health Board (formerly ABMU) was created on April 1, 2019 after responsibility for providing healthcare services in the Bridgend County Borough Council area passed from ABMU to the new Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board.

Cefn Coed Hospital currently provides 150 beds serving the Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Bridgend area. Psychiatric services are primarily community based within sectorised Community Mental Health Teams, linked to a Consultant Psychiatrist and acute wards in the hospital. Two years ago the functionalized services were established. It also has Crisis and Home Treatment Team. It hosts Low Secure Unit which will be moving to Bridgend in March 2015. It also has locked Rehab Unit along with step down houses opened in 2010 following which Ysbryd y Coed, a 60-bed unit for older people with dementia was opened in 2012.

This is a whole time post for a period of 1 year and is suitable for someone who has experience of working in psychiatry in the UK and who has an interest in medical education. MRCPsych membership is ideal but not essential. The teaching registrar would work under the educational leadership of Dr Robert Stamatakis, Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist based in Cefn Coed Hospital, Swansea, and the Caswell Clinic, Bridgend. However, the incumbent could have an interest in another specialty based in Cefn Coed Hospital and other hospital sites within the Mental Health Directorate.
