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.



An exciting opportunity has arisen within Cwm Taf University Health Board for an experienced Mental Health Nurse to contribute to the delivery of healthcare to services users with mental illness in the Merthyr Tydfil area. The post offers the opportunity to work as part of the Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) which includes Nurses, Occupational Therapist, Social Workers, Psychiatrists and Psychologist within a traditional community service model.

Community Mental Health Team (CMHT) services aim to engage with this group of service users with a philosophy of improving their lives through promoting activity, social inclusion and recovery. The successful candidate will be required to work flexibly and responsively between the hours of 9 to 5 Monday to Friday.

As an integral part of the MDT you will be required to act as a Care Coordinator for a caseload that equates to the hours of work, ensuring the implementation of all aspects of the Care and Treatment Plan.

If you have experience working within an Adult mental health setting and would like to be part of a hard working and supportive MDT within the Merthyr Tydfil community, promoting evidence based practice and committed to patient recovery, then we would like to hear from you.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post.
