First Minister plants tree for a greener tomorrow


Fast-track your career into the healthcare profession …


work as a phlebotomist! An increasing demand for skilled healthcare professionals has led to a shortage of allied healthcare workers, especially phlebotomists - the skilled healthcare professionals who take your blood. Demand is at an all-time high with hospitals, clinics and GP Surgeries offering a golden opportunity for that “longed for” career change! If you have good people skills and manual dexterity, and like the idea of working in a busy healthcare environment, a phlebotomist job may be just the job for you! Many people enter this profession when they are looking for a career change or a fresh start and they oſten have no previous qualifications or experience in healthcare. Phlebotomists can work part time (usually mornings) but also may choose to work full time as well as weekends, holidays and bank work. Blood samples are usually collected before mid-day and then analysed in your local hospital’s Path Lab in the aſternoon. Once you are on the healthcare career ladder there are oſten opportunities to progress into other areas, such as working


in the hospital path lab or other departments. Promotion is much easier once you are “on the ladder” and have some experience behind you. Courses are running in Swansea and Cardiff on 17th-18th & 19th-20th October. If you would like to know more about phlebotomy as a career or to book a place on the course visit Geopace Training’s website at www.geopace.net


First Minister with Maria Battle, Chair of Cardiff and Vale University Health Board


Cardiff & Vale Health Charity recently had the pleasure of welcoming the First Minister, Mark Drakeford to Our Orchard at University Hospital Llandough (UHL) to plant a tree which will blossom and grow for the future. The First Minister was joined by Maria Battle, Chair of Cardiff and Vale University Health Board (UHB), Jane Hutt AM, members of the Executive Team and staff to plant an apple tree. The Our Orchard project will bring to life the vision of a community orchard to the fields surrounding the hospital site. The Health Board is working with partners to establish this innovative project which is believed to be the first of its kind at a hospital site in the UK. Our Orchard at UHL has been inspired by individuals and communities interested in creating a sublime ecological area to support health and wellbeing. Maria Battle, Chair of Cardiff and Vale UHB said: “It was a pleasure to welcome the First Minister to Our Orchard to plant a tree, and to show him around this beautiful site, which is supporting the Health Board’s commitment to the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act. Following the tree planting, the group visited The Hearth Gallery to look at the latest exhibition - Wellbeing, Nature, Spaces and the feminine by three women artists – Catherine Lewis, Vaida Barzdaite and Nick Davies. The exhibition features a number of different media including textiles, print, photography, drawing and a creative space for conversation, thought and making. To dedicate a tree as either a memorial or a unique gift, please contact the Fundraising Team on fundraising.cav@wales.nhs.uk or 02921 841802.
