As a University Health Board, we work in partnership with Swansea University and other Welsh universities with a strong research, development, and training agenda. We are highly ambitious for the communities we serve and the people we employ, with emphasis on transformative service development and quality patient centred care.

The Cluster Academic GP Fellow will work as a salaried GP within the Cluster practices for the clinical commitment associated with this fixed term post. Mentorship and daily line management will be provided by the Cluster Lead GP. You will experience a varied and interesting caseload, expanding over a wide range of patients from many different socio-economic backgrounds; who live in a mix of urban and semi-rural areas. The post holder will be a valued member of the Cluster team and will act to contribute to quality patient centred care through evidenced based practice and multi professional learning. The GP Fellow will facilitate training and development sessions within the cluster for multi professional students, ensuring academic pathways align with both individual learning and service needs.
