Our philosophy Cwm Taf Cares is at the heart of everything we do as we are committed to the health, wellbeing and development of our staff.
We provide hospital and community based services to people living in Rhondda Cynon Taf and Merthyr Tydfil. Our vision is to care for our communities and patients by preventing ill-health, promoting better health, providing excellent services and reducing the need for inpatient care wherever possible through the provision of strengthened home, primary and community care

We value the diversity of our staff and welcome applications from people from protected groups under the Equality Act 2010, this specifically includes age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity/reassignment, race, religion, disability, pregnancy and maternity and marriage and civil partnership
We are looking to appoint fully qualified midwives to our newly created Midwifery Bank service to work as and when required within the acute service at Royal Glamorgan Hospital & Prince Charles Hospital, as well as in the Community.
At Cwm Taf University Health Board we care for approximately 4000 women per annum. The local population has some of the highest social deprivation in Wales yet our outcomes compare very favourably with National outcomes with a continuous reduction in our caesarean section rate and increasing use of the alongside birth centre.
We are really proud of our strong team philosophy of woman centred care and increasing normality. Some initiatives in 2015 included partners staying overnight, and winning a health technology award to fund a wireless telemetry service. Current research being led by midwives is: Smoking cessation, weight management and breastfeeding peer support all supported by Public Health Wales. 98% of women rate the service as good or very good.
The environment in the Prince Charles Site is undergoing major refurbishment in 2017 and there will be development of a free standing midwifery led unit in 2018. Some of the work will consist of increasing the number of pools available from 2 to 6, a bereavement room, a second obstetric theatre and general enhancement of the environment for both women and staff.
