Gibraltar is a British dependency at the southernmost tip of the Iberian Peninsula, easily reached in just over 2 hours (flying time) from London, Bristol or Manchester airports. Located by the waterfront, overlooking the straits of Gibraltar and Northern Africa. The area is perfect for those wishing to explore Southern Spain, Portugal and North Africa.
The Gibraltar Health Service is organised and modelled on UK NHS and follows traditions of British medical practice.
The Anaesthetics and Intensive Care Department at the Gibraltar Health Authority are looking to recruit Registrars and Fellows to join our team on contract terms for a maximum period of 12 months.
Applicants should have had at least 2 years of training in anaesthesia and some experience of intensive care medicine, as they will be first on call with a Consultant second on call from home. UK trained applicants should have completed CT2 Anaesthetics or CT3 ACCS-Anaesthesia, though primary FRCA is not required. Senior registrars seeking OOPE/OOPP/OOPT and post CCT anaesthetists looking for a year away before starting their first consultant job have also joined the team and found the post to be a tremendously worthwhile and enjoyable one.
The department has been approved for CT3 equivalence and out of programme training (OOPT) by the Royal College of Anaesthetists and General Medical Council. St Bernard’s Hospital forms part of the Gibraltar School of Anaesthesia on the lifelong learning platform and at present is part of the South West Deanery.
The job and rota are EWTD compliant comprising less than 48 hours on average per week including non-clinical sessions to help with continuing professional development.
Applicants for this post from outside of the UK who have appropriate qualifications and proof of English language proficiency may be eligible for up to two years exemption from GMC registration.
The total remuneration is £73,257.00 per annum.
Income tax rates in Gibraltar compare very favourably with the European average. Return economy class air-fares from the UK are payable in full. In addition, a rented accommodation allowance of between £1000 and £1200, dependant on family composition, is payable, solely whilst on a fixed term contract and upon submission of an official rental agreement.
Non-EU nationals should note that a Schengen Visa is required in order to be able to transit through Europe. This is obtained from the applicant’s place of residence. Please note that Schengen Visas cannot be obtained through Gibraltar.
The successful applicants will also be eligible for up to 10 days per annum of study leave with a single overseas course fully funded by the GHA per year. The post includes 25 days annual leave, in addition to Gibraltar’s 12 bank holidays, per year.
Further information on the duties and responsibilities of the post are available from Dr Jan Novak, Clinical Director of Anaesthesia & Intensive Care – Jan.Novak@gha.gi
