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


Would you like to work in the Outer Hebrides in our small and supportive practice? Are you interested in Community Hospital work, maybe developing your clinical interests, and re-invigorating your love of General Practice and Medicine? As well as a varied and fulfilling job, we can offer a strong community, wild hills and huge beaches, exciting live music, wildlife and surf.

We are looking for a GP to join the practice, preferably a full time partner, although other options are available.  Experience in A&E, BASICS training and other acute specialty interests are an advantage.  We are prepared to wait for the right person, and support for training and development is a given.

Please note: this is not a standard GP job, it still pays well and our patients are fantastic. The job will provide clinical challenges, opportunities to work in extended roles, to develop services and to inspire the next generation of rural GPs. Small patient numbers and a strong nursing team means we have an interesting and manageable GP workload.


Some nitty gritty:

  • 2,300 patients
  • 16-20 bed Community hospital
  • Dispensing practice with one branch surgery
  • Opportunities for medical student teaching and mentoring
  • No QOF, we’re Scottish
  • EMIS PCS and Docman, paper-light, recent IT upgrade
  • 6 weeks annual leave, minimum 2 weeks study leave (pro rata)
  • Golden Hello applies – please ask to see if you qualify
