Vacancy: Kyle of Lochalsh – Partner

Kyle of Lochalsh Medical Centre

Kyle of Lochalsh Medical Centre

An opportunity for partnership has arisen due to relocation of an existing partner at Kyle Medical Practice.

We are looking for a 5-8 session partner to join our happy, 5 partner nGMS practice with a healthy work-life balance.  The practice has a list size of approximately 2600 and covers a large geographical area from Kyleakin in South Skye to Cluanie and from Ardnaff to Mam Ratagan. There is an immediate care hospital at Broadford (9 miles from the practice) staffed by Rural Practitioners. This has a small 24/7 A+E and covers GP out of hours for the practice area – there is therefore no out of hours commitment for the practice GPs.

The practice is based in Lochalsh Healthcare Centre in Kyle of Lochalsh. The building is Health Board owned, accommodating dental facilities on the upper floor and office areas for locality district nurses, CPN’s, midwives etc. There are also teleconferencing facilities and a meeting room. The practice itself has five GP consulting rooms, one of which is kept for visiting specialists / optician / medical students. There is also a practice nurse room and a separate treatment room. The building was completed in August 2008.

We are paperlite, use VISION and Docman clinical systems.

If eligible, standard + additional rurality Golden Hello payments are available to the successful applicant.

There are good local services and schools with the National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music based at Plockton High School. Skye and Lochalsh offers many outdoor activity options and is world renowned as a location for climbing, hill-walking and sea kayaking.
