Salary £80K pro rata + Golden Hello if eligible 

Arran is an island situated just off the west coast of Scotland where general practice is varied and interesting and the beautiful setting offers a great quality of life. We are looking for an enthusiastic and highly motivated GP to join our current team of nine GPs, four practice nurses, two HCAs and supportive administrative staff.

With a patient list size of 5,000, Arran Medical Group is an accredited GP training practice and dispensing practice working across three main and four branch sites.  Using EMIS PCS clinical system, the practice is a high QOF achiever and takes part in a wide range of enhanced services.

There are excellent opportunities for greater continuity of patient care due to the local GPs offering acute and inpatient care at the 17-bed community hospital.

The team of island GPs provides A&E and OOH services with a ‘2nd on call’ for support if required.  Remuneration for this work is very attractive.

There is a full induction programme with needs assessment and a wealth of training and educational opportunities. This is a chance to work in a community that is proud and supportive of its health services.
