We seek to appoint 2 self-motivated Clinicians with an enthusiasm for General Adult Community Psychiatry to join our team of Psychiatrists in NHS Highland.  These posts offer an opportunity to be a Psychiatrist to a population spread across a number of remote and rural and urban communities that are well supported by community health teams, colleagues in Primary care and Rural General Hospitals.  There is scope to offer these posts as geographically separate sectors or as posts that work collaboratively to cover both areas.  The recent pandemic has accelerated our existing capacity to deliver the service using digital technology, which opens up further opportunity to potential post holders.    The service can be flexible about how these posts could operate; part time posts would be considered.

Applicants must be on the GMC specialist register in General Adult Psychiatry or within 6 months of award of CCT by date of interview as consideration can be given to appoint on a proleptic basis.

This post requires participation in the Consultant on call rota at New Craigs Hospital.  Applications for flexible working will be considered

Interested applicants should contact Dr Amy Macaskill, Clinical Lead, General Adult Psychiatry, New Craigs Hospital, Inverness on amy.macaskill@nhs.scot.  Prospective applicants are most welcome to contact us in order to arrange an informal visit.
