In addition, we deliver pacemaker implant and follow up services and a range of non-invasive diagnostic investigations. Our vision is to expand services to encompass a broader range of diagnostics over the wider mid Wales region.

Continued support and supervision will be provided in order to develop the practitioner to the band 7 role. Failure to achieve the competencies in the designated timeframe could result in re-deployment.

This position offers the opportunity to develop as a clinical leader and understand wider processes involved in service delivery. We are seeking a candidate that shares our Health Board values and commitment to ensuring the quality of our services.
