We would hope you might be, or could become keen on undergraduate training.. But we are prepared to wait for the right person as we know that this post won’t suit everyone.

The surgery is set above a beach of perfect white sand, and the view from the consulting room is probably the best in Britain. The weather can be hell but the scenery is to die for! We don’t have the same rain as the rest of Scotland, nor the midges, and where else in Britain are there ponies that dance?  Shetland is a wonderful place to live and work. Shetland offers low pollution, low crime, excellent schools, great leisure facilities, unique wildlife and amazing scenery, whilst still only a short flight away from the UK mainland.
