Do you have a passion for community working? Would you love to work with patients in their own homes, helping them to stay well, to optimise their swallowing and communication skills and to contribute to admission avoidance? Do you love working as part of an MDT to meet patient goals. Then this is the job for you!

Due to a newly created vacancy within the team, an exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic, motivated and innovative Speech and Language Therapist to join our friendly, hard working and patient-centred MDT team at Dewi Sant Hospital, Pontypridd.

You will participate in weekly MDT meetings and contributing to overall service delivery and improvement. You will offer mentoring and clinical supervision to your junior colleagues as required.

You will also have access to videofluoroscopy and FEES local services to instrumentally assess and rehabilitate your service users' swallowing difficulties. We encourage you to accompany these appointments for your won professional development as well as optimising joined up care.

We are a friendly, supportive and cohesive team and within CTMUHB there are plenty of opportunities for clinical supervision, CPD and development as well as a strong priority placed on staff wellbeing.
