Scotland is home to one of the best healthcare systems in the world - the iconic NHS - and the good news is - we're hiring!

Specialty Doctor (Anaesthetics): £39,846 to £79,304 (pro-rata, where applicable)

Scotland has long enriched the field of medicine, both in terms of practice and research, and it has a particularly proud history in the field of anaesthetics.

Anaesthetic services in Scotland have advanced enormously in the last few years with significant investment in technology and research. Services are delivered predominantly through individual NHS Health Boards.

Within Scotland, the NHS enjoys a distinctly Scottish identity. Many UK and international medical graduates have been drawn to Scotland by the career opportunities presented with working within the National Health Service (NHS). There are few people in Scotland today whose life has not been touched in some way by the NHS, which remains committed to delivering patient-centred care, free at the point of delivery. Through our ambitious Health and Social Care Delivery Plan we are actively designing a service fit for future needs, which is embodied in the triple-aim of Better Health, Better Care and Better Value.

NHS Scotland currently employs a workforce of over 163,000 staff across Acute, Primary Care, Community, and Health and Social Care Partnerships with many of our staff working across our 274 hospitals, which include large teaching centres, district general hospitals and smaller community based hospitals. Approximately £14.7 billion (GBP) is spent on health and social care annually.

Serving a population of 5.3 million, equitable access to robust quality and timely anaesthetic services is vital for clinicians involved in both emergency and routine care to ensure optimal outcomes for their patients.

We can also offer opportunities to pursue academic and clinical teaching interests due to the close links with the five medical schools in Scotland: St Andrews, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Dundee and Glasgow.

Additional payments can be achieved for extra sessions and on-call commitments. Other benefits include up to 41 days holiday per year, a contributory pension scheme and a generous relocation package to support your transition to Scotland, this includes expert guidance on the process of obtaining General Medical Council (GMC) registration and a UK immigration visa, if required.

Applicants must have valid GMC (General Medical Council) Registration with a Licence to Practice (known as 'Full registration'). To work as a substantive consultant in Scotland, you must have Full Registration 'and' be included on the GMC Specialist Register, or be within 6 months of confirmed entry from the date of interview.

Closing date: Monday 12th August
Interviews will be scheduled between 24th September to 26th September, based in Stirling (video conference facilities will also be available).
