Vacancy: Langabhat, Western Isles (GP)

Enthusiasm is not the same as just being excited. One gets excited about going on a roller coaster. One becomes enthusiastic about creating and building a roller coaster

Langabhat Medical Practice

Salaried General Practitioner (6/8 sessions), partnership if desired to be mutually agreed.

Langabhat Medical Practice is excited to bring this unique opportunity to the medical community. We are seeking a salaried GP who would love to work in the Western Isles and embrace the quality lifestyle it provides.

Our Practice is based in the Isle of Lewis which is steeped in history and culture. The Island has a fantastic community spirit, which welcomes everyone. We have a thriving tourist industry with visitors from all over the world. The Island caters for all ages and interests, from surfing to traditional family activities.

We are seeking an enthusiastic individual who will enhance the care we offer to our 5500 patients. Langabhat is a training practice which has six surgeries located throughout Lewis’s rural communities which we have recently merged to one practice. We require a patient- centred individual to join our multi-disciplinary team of Nurse Practitioners, Practice Nurses and Health Care Assistants led by a team of innovative and focused GP’s to help drive our vision of a rural, modern medical practice.

We are looking to develop the Practice, and are therefore seeking a GP to join our team with the view to becoming a partner if desired.   Ideally we would like an 8 session GP however we would be flexible with the right candidate.  In addition to the above we need someone who will support and take an interest as we make the transition from QOF to the new GMS contract terms.

The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to take on out of hours work at Western Isles Hospital though this is not compulsory.

After a period of exciting change merging four separate practices over the last four years, Langabhat Medical Practice are now seeking a candidate who is enthusiastic about helping us shape the future of rural General Practice.

Langabhat is a very high earning practice that has always achieved maximal or near maximal QOF points.

If you are seeking the right work/life balance, Langabhat Medical Practice is for you.
