Health Disability Activity Practitioner

We provide healthcare services to people living in Bridgend, Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf county borough areas, serving a population of around 450,000. We are ideally situated between Wales’s capital city, Porthcawl to the west, and the stunning scenery in the Beacon Beacons.

Our vision is to care for our communities and patients by preventing ill-health, promoting better health, providing excellent services and reducing the need for inpatient care wherever possible through the provision of strengthened home, primary and community care.

We value the diversity of our staff and welcome applications from people from protected groups under the Equality Act 2010, this specifically includes age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity/reassignment, race/nationality, religion/belief, disability, pregnancy and maternity and marriage and civil partnership.

Cwm Taf Morgannwg is a Living Wage Employer.

Please check your email account regularly. Successful applicants will receive all recruitment related correspondence via the email account registered on the application form.

All applicants are invited to apply in Welsh or English, and no preference will be given to applications submitted in either language.


An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board, as a band 5 Health Disability Activity Practitioner. This will be a permanent, part time position at 18.75hours. The primary base for this position will be Royal Glamorgan Hospital but there will be an expectation to move between all sites across the health board as the post requires.

We are looking for a highly motivated person to join our friendly and dynamic team, committed to providing excellent care. You should be a team player who enjoys working in a fast paced environment. You will need excellent time management, observation and communication skills and be able to demonstrate a genuine interest in achieving well being and positive health outcomes for the population we serve.

The post holder will be an active member of the Health Disability Activity National team, and Health Board area Disability Sport Wales team. You will lead the implementation of the Health Disability Activity Partnership across your Health Board area to achieve the outcomes of promoting and improving the health of disabled people through increased levels of physical activity.

A key role will be enabling a robust partnership between Health and (disability) Sport across Wales by working closely with colleagues in Disability Sport Wales (DSW), other Health Disability Activity Practitioners in Wales and the National Health Disability Activity Team Leader. 

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

Accessibility Options

Colour

Select an option:


 

The Light colour mode is designed using Disability Sport Wales brand colours, to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidance Level AA. This should provide good contrast for most users.

The Dark colour mode also uses Disability Sport Wales brand colours, but inverts light and dark to create a "night mode" version. It is intended for people who dislike bright screens, or wish to use their display in a more energy-efficient way. This option does not meet Web Content Accessibility Guidance Level AA, so may not be suitable for users with visual impairments.

The Calm colour mode uses colours which may be more suitable for users who are sensitive to bright colours, or prefer lower contrast. This option does not meet Web Content Accessibility Guidance Level AA, so may not be suitable for users with visual impairments.

The High Contrast option is tailored to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidance Level AAA, and is intended to make this website as accessible as possible to users with the lowest visual acuity. Ideal use of this setting would be combined with Medium Text or Large Text text sizes.


Buttons

Our default button style uses block-colour backgrounds that contrast against the page background.

You can optionally change this to use buttons that maintain the same background colour and text colour as the main website content, and signifies that is a button with an outline. This may be preferred by users who can read light-on-dark or dark-on-light with greater comfort.

Use of Capital Letters

You can choose to minimise the use of capital letters for headings and sub-headings if you find them easier to read in Sentence Case. Some text, including acronyms, may still be shown in capital letters.
