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.

An opportunity has arisen for a HCSW to join a team of experienced nurses working on one of our busy Medical wards which also looks after patients who have gastro-enterology problems.

You will have the opportunity to develop your skills, under the supervision of qualified nurses, caring for patients who are acutely ill with medical conditions. This ward is a busy area that provides an excellent opportunity to deal with patients in a short and medium-term care environment.

Experience within the speciality of Medicine is desirable but not essential. The post is rotational between day and night duty.
