Vacancy: Colonsay & Oronsay (Relief Salaried GP)


We are looking for a relief salaried doctor to provide GP cover for this small, remote Hebridean practice with a community of 130 people in a beautiful island location.

This is a very flexible post, with an initial contract for one year. The successful applicant would be expected to work approximately 12 weeks spread over the year with the dates mutually agreed with the Partners.

You will have 24 hour a day on call responsibility covering the working day and the out of hours for all casualties, emergencies and un-scheduled care. We are open to suggested ways of working that might suit your individual choices.

Good emergency skills with ALS or BASICS training and experience in Accident and Emergency medicine are essential and an ability to use your clinical initiative and resilience a great advantage.

You should be comfortable working on your own in an isolated practice. Previous experience of remote and rural practices would be advantageous although initially gaining experience in post as a locum GP is another option

This would be very suitable for a GP seeking experience in remote and rural medicine in a geographically challenging situation whilst gaining the experience of working as a sole practitioner.

The practice maintains strong links to secondary care and is supported by telemedicine facilities and the Emergency Medical Retrieval Service (EMRS) based in Glasgow.

Starting date is flexible from winter 2016 but we are willing to wait for the right person.

For further information or to arrange an informal chat please email Drs Brooks or Dr Binnie at

Application by email enclosing CV and referees.  This post has now been filled.
