Due to the forthcoming retirement of the current post holder the Children’s Hospital for Wales Theatres are keen to find a new Clinical Leader.

The Children’s Hospital for Wales is a tertiary centre for Paediatric Surgery in Wales and is located on the same site as the University Hospital of Wales. The theatre suite was commissioned in February 2015 when Phase 2 of the Children’s Hospital for Wales was opened. The suite has 6 operating theatres and serves General Paediatric Surgery, Trauma and Orthopaedics, ENT, Ophthalmology, Endoscopy, Dental and Oncology with daily Children’s Acute Theatre (CEPOD) provision. The Children’s Theatre suite is managed under the umbrella of the Perioperative Directorate within Surgery Clinical Board of Cardiff and Vale UHB which has a total of 42 operating theatres.

The Perioperative Directorate are looking for an experienced Registered Nurse or Operating Department Practitioner with a passion for facilitating the delivery of 1st class Paediatric surgery. The post holder will be responsible for the day to day running of the theatre suite and the management of the Anaesthetic, Theatre and Recovery Practitioner teams. The post holder will be expected to work closely with the Perioperative Directorate General Manager, Child Health Directorate and Senior Nurse to ensure theatre efficiency and utilisation is optimal.

So, if you have a strong leadership background, are highly motivated, conscientious and enjoy a challenge then the post of Clinical Leader to our great theatre team may be the right job for you.

Applicants should have a relevant background and understanding of perioperative care with a wide range of skills and knowledge which will equip them to lead and support this service.
