Salary: £89,378 per annum (37.5 hours / 10 sessions per week)

Development of sub-specialty interest is encouraged

The department of Respiratory Medicine in Hywel Dda UHB has been undergoing significant and exciting re-design and development, Professor Keir Lewis has been appointed the Chair of Respiratory Medicine in Hywel Dda. His post has already significantly increased the already very active research portfolio within the health board.

The Respiratory team currently comprises 7 substantive and 1 locum Respiratory Physicians based in Carmarthenshire working across Glangwili General Hospital, Prince Philip Hospital & providing a visiting Consultant service to Withybush General Hospital, and supporting Bronglais Hospital. The health board backed future blueprint for Respiratory services is for a motivated team of Respiratory Physicians providing very high quality specialist respiratory services for the population of Mid & West Wales across 4 sites, with a 1 in 20 on-call for General Medicine. For on-call purposes this post will be based in Glangwilli Hospital as part of a General Medical take.
