Life then work... 
We are looking for enthusiastic individuals to join our team at Dr Gray’s Hospital, Elgin - a great place to live and work, lying between the coast of the Moray Firth and the mountains of the Highlands and the Cairngorm National Park.   

The post-holders would be welcomed into a middle grade team of Emergency Medicine Medics, delivering 24/7 care to patients in Moray. You would be joining an engaged, high energy team and will bring your own unique value to the already diverse team. We are looking to recruit 1 WTE for a fixed term of 12 months, to this dynamic team which currently comprises of both Emergency Medical Practitioners (GP) and Speciality Doctors in Emergency Medicine. You would be predominantly Clinical, working amongst your Middle Grade colleagues, under the oversight of the Emergency Medical Consultant Team and supporting the Junior Trainees. This is a full time role with working pattern driven by a 24/7 middle grade rolling rota, 12 hr shifts with 50:50 out of hours work split. Time will be allocated within the rota for one's own development and wider service improvement activities; this could include, clinical pathway development, clinical audits, training and education. We will ensure you benefit from ongoing supervision and training and you will be supported with local and wider training/development opportunities to fulfil the role as needed and in support of your annual appraisal and PDP. 

We welcome applications from both GP’s wishing to develop their Emergency skills or Speciality Doctors. Specialty Doctors should have completed at least four years’ full-time postgraduate training (or its equivalent gained on a part-time or flexible basis) at least two of which will be in a specialty training programme in a relevant specialty or as a fixed term specialty trainee in a relevant specialty; or shall have equivalent experience and competencies. At Dr Gray’s we operate a flexible middle grade rota and as such the post holders can combine this post with other roles. We welcome applicants with a range of availability from 12 to 40 hours per week. This offers you the opportunity to protect time for your life outside of medicine so you and your family can enjoy all that Moray has to offer.

You will be coming to work in a department that has a family feel (we get a 6 course meal on Christmas day!), great facilities (Ultrasound, LUCAS, working Ophthalmoscopes!), great teaching from FRCEM examiners, Ultrasound Trainers, Pre-hospital Care Consultants & Examiners, and most importantly fabulous colleagues that make coming to work fun.  Have a look at our GMC training survey which we are very proud about.

Come for a long weekend and speak to our medical staff about work and play (you may be surprised about our climate and rainfall!).  Cheap flights are available several times a day to Inverness or Aberdeen.

NB*Speciality Doctor applicants: please note there is not a job plan associated with this role as clinical activity is based around a rolling rota with study leave and development time factored into the rolling rota. Your working pattern will be based on your appointed WTE within the context of this rota and not a PA/SPA based job plan.

Full registration with a licence to practise with the GMC is required. For more information visit 

We offer:  

  • Policies to help balance commitments at work and home and flexible family friendly working arrangements  
  • Excellent training and development opportunities. 
  • On-site library services  
  • Access to NHS staff benefits/staff discounts 
  • Excellent student support
