Vacancy: Dingwall (Partner/Salaried GP)

Some of the team at Dingwall Medical Centre

The Dingwall Medical Group are looking for a doctor to join the practice. We have a large list size of 11,300 patients. There are currently 9 partners working between 6 and 9 sessions each week. We are a training practice for GPST’s & medical students. Based in a spacious and newly refurbished Health Board owned premises we work alongside our district nursing, social work, podiatry and midwifery colleagues. We are 11 miles away from Raigmore Hospital in Inverness.

We hold to a traditional view of general practice partnership and value continuity of care and providing a mutually supportive working environment. At the same time, we are exploring innovative ways of working by participating in specialist paramedic practitioner training as well as embarking on a trial with a full time physiotherapist providing same day patient assessments.

The practice actively encourages its GP’s to diversify and develop outside interests. We have one partner who is the past chair of the RCGP Scotland, another who is currently the national head of Girlguiding Scotland. Occupational medicine, sports medicine, overseas medical development work, IT, farming and equestrian sports keep the remaining partners occupied.

Over the next couple of years the retirement of existing partners is likely to create opportunities to increase the number of sessions worked if this is desired.

Support is available as one of the 160 rural and remote practices, including a ‘golden hello’ payment of £10,000 to GPs taking up their first post in a rural practice and a relocation package of up to £5,000.

For more information please see our advert on NHS Scotland Recruitment or contact Robert Macnaughton (Practice Manager – rmacnaughton@nhs.net) or Emma Garden (Asst. Practice Manager – emma.garden@nhs.net).  Or give us a call on 01349 863034.
