Try a different kind of general practice. An exciting opportunity has arisen for a GP to join our friendly and committed team. We aim to provide holistic care and adapt new ways of working to support those experiencing homelessness. The Access Place is a unique service providing joined up primary care, housing and social work. We have strong links with organisations serving homelessness including hospital in-reach and Milestone House – offering a place to stay with intensive support between hospital and home. There are often opportunities to advocate for homelessness to policy makers at both local and national level as well as at conferences and via research ties with the University of Edinburgh.

NHS Lothian is the second largest health board in Scotland serving the fastest growing population. We cover four local authority areas, including the city of Edinburgh. As one of the largest healthcare organisations in the UK, we invest approximately £1.6 billion a year in protecting and improving the health and wellbeing of our communities. Our permanent workforce of over 28,000 delivers a comprehensive range of primary, community-based and acute hospital services to a population of over 850,000 people. We have 21 hospitals, 119 GP practices, 182 community pharmacies, 173 general dental practices and 127 optometry practices. As a regional centre, we also provide some services for patients in neighbouring areas and we are a national centre of expertise for other specialties, serving people across Scotland.
We have recently invested in a brand-new children’s hospital, the Royal Hospital for Children & Young People, and a new state of the art Department for Clinical Neurosciences. Now is also an exciting time to join our ophthalmology and oncology teams as we embark on plans to invest significant capital into building leading treatment and research centres.
