This analysis could be pertaining to any of our programmes, such as unscheduled care, maternity services, cancer services, or mental health services, which lends itself to a varied and exciting role.

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