Clinical Development Fellows
Fixed Term for 6 to12 months

Dr Gray’s Hospital welcomes Clinical Development Fellows as part of the team. Dr Gray’s is the smallest District General Hospital in Scotland and therefore offers the benefits of an experience aligned to Rural Medicine in a small friendly setting and opportunity to work across specialties.

Some specific benefits may include:

  • Clinical experience and practical skills are often gained where these would be hard to achieve in a larger teaching hospital environment.
  • Direct Consultant supervision, support and training.
  • Breadth of experience in ED with opportunity to work in different specialties / settings e.g. theatres.
  • Further enhancement of your CV by incorporating this expanded role.
  • Additional hours pay given the small number out of hours (12 hours/week) in the CDF contract.

Exciting developments and workforce innovation are currently taking place at Dr Gray’s Hospital by promoting Rural Medicine, Acute Medicine and Family Medicine models as well as potential for some specialist interests such as a transfer role.

We are looking to develop Dr Gray’s as a Centre of Excellence for Rural Medicine training and experience.

The Clinical Developmental Fellowship (CDF) programme is suitable for Trainees who have recently completed or are about to complete (Aug 2021 or Aug 2022) the UK Foundation Programme, Core Surgical Training or Core Medical Training.

The CDF programme is a generalist appointment to allow flexibility across the hospital along with potential development of specialist interests and potential to have a better educational experience in Women and Child Health posts. It comprises of experience in a range of Clinical Specialties including ED, AMAU, HDU, General Surgery, Orthopaedics, Paediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Mental Health.

In addition to the clinical component you will be assigned to an area of developmental interest in collaboration with the University of Aberdeen: such as Medical Education and Simulation training, Quality Improvement, Research and Development, or Leadership and Management. These activities will be supported through a mentorship programme and all successful applicants will have the opportunity to complete a teaching qualification in a chosen area of mutual benefit to the individual and NHS Grampian.

Successful candidates will be contracted for 40 hours per week - 28 hours per week on average undertaking clinical activities;

12 hours per week on average will be protected for developmental activities and there will be an out-of-hours commitment.

The post holder will be paid at ST level based on their previous experience. A banding supplement relevant to the OOH component of their rotas will also be received.

The post is of high educational value and supported by the University of Aberdeen Medical School.

However, it is not recognised for training by the Postgraduate Dean.

The following incentives may be offered:

At Dr Gray’s we value Clinical Development Fellows and want to invest in your future!

About NHS Grampian

NHS Grampian, which is one of the 14 Regional Health Boards in Scotland, provides healthcare services to the North-East of the country, covering the local government areas administered by Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Morayshire Councils. We employ around 14,500 staff who deliver our services to half a million people spread across 3,000 square miles of city, town, village and rural communities. We have extremely close links to the University of Aberdeen (with its internationally renowned Medical School and new Dental School) and The Robert Gordon University. These close links have made us a centre of pioneering medical research in a number of fields.
Aberdeen, as a major Scottish city, is where most of our hospitals are located. Elgin in Moray, is the site of Dr Gray’s and the principal general hospital in the west of Grampian. In addition, there are a further 14 community hospitals, situated in each of the main towns.
As an employer, we take great care to ensure that all staff have a safe, happy and professional environment

in which to work. Clear policies, covering everything from Dignity at Work to Leave for Domestic, Personal and Family reasons - as well as a comprehensive Occupational Health Service - give our staff confidence and security. We are a listening, caring and people-focused organisation. As a diverse employer, we are welcoming and our employment practices are both flexible and family-friendly. In our approach we aim to be innovative and professional. We are proud of our heritage, proud of our area, history and traditions, and proud of the service we provide to the people of North-East Scotland.

Working with us

At NHS Grampian we have thousands of dedicated staff, all striving to provide the highest quality of healthcare, including almost every major medical specialty, to the population of North-East Scotland.
NHS Grampian are extremely proud of all of them, and of their unique contribution to the work we do every hour of every day of the year. So, as you’ve probably gathered, in addition to your expertise, appropriate qualifications and the experience necessary for each post we advertise, we also look for commitment, friendliness and enthusiasm in our employees. People matter at NHS Grampian and we welcome applications from every sector of the community.

One of the greatest pleasures of living and working here in the North-East of Scotland is very different from the rest of the country. There is a charming balance between the cosmopolitan, internationally recognised oil capital that is Aberdeen, memorably described as a city with the culture of a village, and the rural, relaxed, outdoor lifestyle of the coastal and inland towns of Aberdeenshire and Moray.
