Vacancy: Benbecula, Scottish Hebrides (Partner/Salaried GP)


Would you like to work in the Outer Hebrides, in a stunning location with a supportive team? Are you interested in Community Hospital work, developing your clinical interests, and re-invigorating your love of General Practice and Medicine? Or perhaps you were thinking of seeking adventure in New Zealand? Fares here are cheaper and the experience could be what you are looking for.

hebrides2Due to retirement, we are looking for a replacement partner to join our 4 partner dispensing practice. We are looking for a full-time partner, but are interested in other arrangements, including long-term locum positions, job-sharing and part-time posts.

Our practice is remote and rural, with opportunities to extend your practice and shape local services within a small team and Health Board. We work closely with other professional groups to build resilience through networking. We are seeing great opportunities on the horizon for innovation, collaboration and development through the new Scottish GMS contract.

We also support medical students with an interest in rural general practice; we take undergraduates on attachment, and plan to be part of Scottish rural fellowship scheme for GPs. We also link with other practices in the area to create local educational opportunities.


We provide medical cover for the community hospital under a LES. Out of Hours sessions are also available. Do you come with extra skills? This is a great job for people who wish to combine general practice with other clinical interests. For the right person, this is one of the most fulfilling jobs you could do.

Some nitty gritty:

  • 2,350 patients
  • Dispensing practice with one branch surgery
  • Opportunities for medical student teaching
  • 20 bed Community hospital
  • High QOF, good income
  • Emis PCS and Docman, paper-light, recent IT upgrade
  • 6 weeks annual leave, 2 weeks study leave covered by the practice, plus 2 additional weeks with HB support
  • Amazing beaches, hills, and surf for outdoor recreation opportunities
