Staff, Specialty & Associate Specialist Doctors

Specialty doctors in Wales work in a wide range of clinical settings from large teaching hospitals in major cities, to District General hospitals in towns and clinics in rural areas.

Career options are wide and varied - from junior to sub-consultant level - and suit a range of skills, specialty interests and lifestyle options.

Wales offers employment flexibility along with the close peer networks that come from working in a small yet diverse nation. The Welsh Assembly Government and NHS Wales fully recognise the service contribution of specialty doctors and a range of CPD initiatives are delivered through the Postgraduate Deanery.

These bodies work together to implement the Good Practice Guide by embedding flexibility and professional support within the new contract and ensuring that our specialty doctors achieve the best possible balance between clinical care and professional activities.
