There has never been a more exciting time to join our team as we pioneer new ways of delivering health services. Our innovative Clinical Futures programme is building on local Health, Social Care and Well Being Strategies that have been developed by local health boards and their partners, bridging all aspects of primary, community and secondary care and you could be a part of its plans to deliver the best to our patients and communities.

As well as being an innovative employer, staff wellbeing is one of the Health Board’s priorities, with a comprehensive package of support and development opportunities available to all. It is the Health Board’s aim that it is an enjoyable and fulfilling place to work as feeling valued  has a positive impact on both staff and patients.

There are flexible working arrangements available and all staff can access an excellent range of additional benefits and services.
