£41,986 - £78,294 per annum, pro rata
Fixed term for one to two years
Surrounded by the beauty, history and lifestyle opportunities of the Highlands, but well connected by rail and to major hubs by air, it shouldn’t be surprising that Inverness is Scotland’s fastest growing city. We are inviting applications for a Specialty Doctor to join the Gastroenterology team.
We are developing and expanding our existing team of 3.4 FTE consultant gastroenterologists, 9 specialist nurses across IBD, liver, viral hepatitis and nutrition, 2.5 specialist dietitians, GI Pharmacist and Clinical Psychologist.
NHS Highland serves a population of around 320,000, dispersed through 40% of the land area of Scotland. Our remote and rural geography informs the structure of our service. Secondary healthcare is provided by Raigmore (district general) Hospital in Inverness, rural general hospitals (RGHs) in Wick, Fort William and Oban and a network of community hospitals. We provide a comprehensive gastroenterology, hepatology and clinical nutrition service, using technological and collaborative solutions to deliver care in settings appropriate to patients’ needs.
During this appointment you will work across the Gastroenterology ward, as well as having involvement in specialist outpatient clinics and procedural clinics. There is the option to work across General Medicine if you wish to pursue CESR.
You will work at middle grade level. You will have the opportunity to manage a range of acute medical problems and to develop your clinical leadership within these areas. You will have the opportunity to develop clinical skills and to practice them regularly. You will be expected to manage patients as a senior decision maker under the guidance of a consultant physician. You will work collaboratively with other team members.
In addition to clinical management we would expect you to develop other roles in the department, such as quality improvement or service development.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to ensure they have spoken to the informal contacts and other relevant senior colleagues. You can ask for a Teams meeting to be set up through the department contact.
Interviews will be held via Microsoft Teams. Informal enquiries will be welcomed by Dr Neil Jamieson (email@example.com) 01463 705755, Consultant Gastroenterologist or Dr Hazel Younger, Consultant Gastroenterologist (firstname.lastname@example.org) 01463 705442.
