Medical Officer – International Assistance – HM Government Staff Overseas

Healix Group of Companies
Esher, Surrey
Closing date
18 Mar 2024



Healix International is a leading provider of international medical assistance services to a wide range of public and private sector organisations.  In particular Healix operates One HMG Healthline, the overseas health coordination service for British diplomatic staff and dependants overseas.

We are looking for a doctor to join our existing team of One HMG Healthline medical officers based at our headquarters in Esher, Surrey.  Working part-time, you would be responsible for coordinating the healthcare of British diplomats overseas.  This involves acting as a source of medical advice to UK government staff in a very wide variety of locations around the world, providing clinical oversight of care overseas, advising on the necessity to return to the UK for medical care and making decisions about medical evacuation.  The role also involves approving pre-travel medical clearance for diplomatic staff and you will be a point of contact for providing medical advice to the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office as well as other government departments who have staff overseas.  Senior clinical supervision is available at all times.

We currently have a vacancy for a doctor to work five sessions a week at just over £12,750 per session per annum.  There is an option to join a 1:4 daytime weekend on call duty for urgent cases only which is separately remunerated.  You would also be eligible to take part in international aeromedical patient transfers if you wished – that work would also be paid separately.

Working for the One HMG Healthline team is challenging, exciting and varied – you will also gain a unique insight into how the UK Government operates overseas through its network of diplomatic missions.  Good interpersonal and communication skills are absolutely essential and you must have the confidence and experience to be able to cope with a wide range of medical situations. You will need to be able to explain complex medical issues to non-medical clients and learn to apply your medical expertise within a commercial environment.

Candidates for this post must have at least five years post-qualification experience, have MRCGP and be a practising UK GP on the NHS Performers List.
