NHS Wales is unique, with an integrated model of care supporting patients. Within this Public Health Wales, is a national Public Health Institute, working locally, nationally and internationally on infection, and wider health and wellbeing.

Our expanding 'Infection Service' team embraces this with a strong commitment to collaboration, team working and personal development.

To complement our existing teams, which include international leaders in infection diagnosis and management, we are seeking new colleagues to help deliver the best solutions and outcomes for the people of Wales, developing new workforce and technological models to meet changing population need.
