We are delighted to welcome a further 33 overseas nurses in addition to 27 nurses who joined Cwm Taf Morgannwg in September. The nurses, from India, have joined our team following a recruitment drive and are settling into their roles at our three acute hospitals after completing a period of quarantine.
Dedicated Senior Nurse Clinical Education Greg McKenzie, who’s responsible for nursing and midwifery education within the health board, has been appointed a Visiting Professor at the University of South Wales.
We are incredibly proud of Rhianydd Davey and Alice Lewis, two of our fabulous practice nurses at New Ty Newydd GP Surgery in Treherbert.
Their passion for practice nursing in Cwm Taf Morgannwg was recognised at the RCN (Wales) Nurse of the Year Awards (2019) where they were runners up in the Mentorship Award.
Nursing staff are taking a wound clinic into the community as part of a new Leg Club in the Rhondda. The Lindsay Leg Club Foundation supports leg clubs around the UK with the aim of providing community-based treatment, and care for people of all age groups who suffer with leg-related problems.
Patients who could become confused or agitated while in hospital are being given extra support following the launch of a new scheme by Cwm Taf University Health Board.
