One Year Fixed Term Salaried GP Vacancy 6 – 8 sessions a week - Isle of Lewis
We are seeking an enthusiastic and friendly GP to join our family medical practice based in Stornoway and Habost on the Isle of Lewis in the Western Isles of Scotland. We are a G.P. Training Practice with a Practice Area covering the whole of the island and we work closely with NHS Western Isles to provide the full complement of General Medical Services for the 8,000 patients who are registered with us.
Both our sites are minutes away from the breathtaking beaches that make the Isle of Lewis a popular destination for visitors and for people looking for a new and relaxed way of life. We aim to provide an enjoyable and supportive work environment to our staff and we can offer flexible session times to enable a good work life balance.
We have a team of three partner GPs, three salaried GPs, four practice nurses, clinical and administrative support staff and practice management. As a training practice we have GPSTs and medical students assigned to us and our GPs also act as mentors to other healthcare professionals. We have excellent multidisciplinary support and many community services are collocated in our surgeries.
We offer our GPs the BMA model contract and terms and conditions with no OOH commitment or on call duties. The successful candidate would have opportunities to work in both our sites. Home visit requirements are only required when GPs are working in Habost and these are minimal as any that are urgent or unscheduled are carried out by the Health Board under the new contract.
Interested applicants should contact Jennifer Hepburn, Practice Manager on 01851 70 3145 or email for more information.
