We have an exciting new opportunity in Area West BCU Speech and Language therapy. This is a new Band 7 role in paediatric dysphagia, working within an established Multidisciplinary Feeding team led by the consultant paediatrician, and within our locality teams. The post will have strong links with our paediatric Dysphagia colleagues across North Wales, including those in neonatal care, and will take a leadership role in the further development of the current service in Gwynedd and Mon.

The successful candidate will demonstrate insight and passion into the care of babies and children with swallowing problems, and a strong desire to develop excellence in clinical care. The candidate will have extensive experience in assessment, diagnosis, treatment and quality of life interventions for dysphagia, and have a clear vision for the service in West area.

He/ she will be able to demonstrate evidence of clinical leadership such as leading in service development projects, clinical audit, and in implementing service change programmes. He/ she will be committed to working in a multi professional team and demonstrate highly developed communication and negotiation skills within this forum.

The population of Gwynedd and Anglesey are naturally bilingual and local services including primary and secondary care are provided bilingually in Welsh and English and therefore the ability to converse though the medium of both Welsh and English would be an advantage.

Our department has established systems for supporting professional and managerial supervision and mentoring, and is committed to supporting professional development. In view of this being a relatively small specialism, we would support external training and development, links with National Clinical Excellence networks, and suitable mentoring and supervision as needed.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
