Clinical Director, General Surgery

Consultants in General Surgery

Applications are invited for the posts of:

  • Clinical Director in General Surgery & Endoscopy
  • Consultants in General Surgery & Endoscopy (whole time, part time or joint posts)

at the NHS Golden Jubilee National Hospital.

These appointments offer the opportunity to an ambitious team to establish a new general surgery department focussed on elective surgery. We plan to extend beyond day-case surgery so that we can offer more complex surgery to health boards across Scotland – having a substantive team is core to that.

Our Da Vinci X robot is available for two days per week for suitably trained applicants, and we can support any additional training required. The NHS Scotland Academy (a collaboration with NHS Education Scotland) is opening later this year and offers opportunities to consultants interested in medical education, simulation and virtual reality.  

Our service is provided by 21 visiting consultants on a sessional basis. Underpinned by a £45m Scottish Government investment, we are expanding orthopaedic and general surgery. We now plan to augment our visiting team with substantive whole time and part time appointments (including joint appointments with neighbouring health boards to give access to emergency work).

Our current service provides elective day-case surgery and endoscopy for health boards across Scotland. The expansion will increase our general surgical activity by 160% and endoscopy by 250%. Our suite of 15 theatres and 1 endoscopy room is increasing to 26 theatres and 3 endoscopy rooms, opening in stages between 2020-2022.

Applicants must be registered with the General Medical Council, be listed on the Specialist Register (or be within 6 months of entry) and hold a higher surgical qualification in general surgery from one of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons or equivalent, if from out with the UK.

Informal enquiries can be made to: Dr Mark MacGregor, Medical Director – telephone 0141 951 5957

To arrange an informal visit please contact Mrs Claire MacArthur, Director, National Elective Services Division on 0141 951 5017
