Specialty Doctor

Would you love the chance to work in a professionally satisfying role, whilst enjoying a fantastic work-life balance?

We are searching for motivated and enthusiastic Specialty Doctors in General Surgery to join our supportive and forward thinking team on the Isle of Man.

About the roles and our team

Noble’s Hospital is the Island’s only District General Hospital, and General Surgery offers a range of general surgical procedures to cater to the needs our Island population of approximately 85,000 people.

You will be involved in the day to day management of surgical patients both acute and elective at Noble’s Hospital, including ward rounds, clinics and assisting in theatre. Currently the on-call commitment is in the process of moving from a 1-in-8 to a 1-in-9 rota of 12-hour shifts, providing first on-call covering both Orthopaedics and General Surgery. You will share this rota with the other Orthopaedic and General Surgery Specialty Doctors.

As part of your role you will be receiving and acting on referrals from the Emergency Department, other hospital specialities and Primary Care. You are also expected to co-ordinate care with your supervising middle grade Doctor and/or Consultant. The rota is based on a shift system with compensatory rest periods to maintain compliance with your contracted hours. Specific details of the rota can be provided on request.

There are two positions available - one permanent and one limited term appointment until 31 July 2021.

What can this role offer me?

By joining us you’ll be stepping away from NHS pressures and demands, as the Island’s healthcare system is similar but separate to the UK NHS.

You will have access to our on-site Education and Training Centre and library, which includes our state of the art simulation lab.

The Isle of Man has been praised for its effective response to the global pandemic. Currently, due to the lack of cases in the community, people on the Island are enjoying a life free of social distancing regulations.

About the Island and relocating

Here you can enjoy a fantastic quality of life, and an excellent work-life balance! There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities, so if you like walking, mountain biking, sailing or kayaking, you’ll have lots of places to explore!

There are also lots of great cafes, bars and restaurants, and you can enjoy the Island’s real sense of community. The island is well connected to the UK, and you’ll also benefit from low income tax rates (20% maximum rate).

If you are relocating or returning to the Island, you can also benefit from the Insurance Holiday Scheme, which allows you to apply for a refund on your NI contributions for your 1st year of living here. To see how this scheme could benefit you, and to find out more about relocating to the Isle of Man, visit www.locate.im

Interview expenses and a relocation package of up to £7,000 based on receipts is available for this role. Housing Assistance is also available where the Department will pay the difference between your current mortgage/rent bill, and that of your new accommodation on the Isle of Man, up to a maximum of £250 per month.
