We are looking for a part time salaried GP to work in our South Skye Practices. There is no out of hour's commitment.

Our practice team is supported by an excellent district nursing team, and the close proximity of the community hospital with inpatient beds, allied health professionals and visiting consultant clinics offers us unparalleled support for a rural location.
We enjoy having medical students through the University of Aberdeen, and aspire to be a training practice.
Since 2014 we have also been providing medical services to the remote Small Isles, traveling by chartered boat two days per week and using telemedicine links for the rest of the week.The Small Isles Medical Practice has 164 patients over the four Small Islands of Eigg, Rum, Muck and Canna. First Responders and health & social care co-ordinators support the GP team together with a dedicated new health centre and practice manager.
Becoming part of this prestigious and innovative team will offer you the exciting opportunity to work in a variety of stunning locations and embrace the unique challenges and opportunities presented by rural practice. You will be working as part of an extended team of professionals including the Scottish Ambulance Service, RNLI Coastguards, Fire and Rescue Services and Mountain Rescue.
You will ideally be experienced in skills such as pre-hospital care, ALS, PLS and palliative care.
With its link to the mainland by bridge, the Isle of Skye is accessible and offers a huge range of outdoor sporting activities, eating options including Michelin star restaurants, art events and great primary schools and Secondary education. Wildlife is in abundance, with regular sightings of dolphins, Sea and Golden Eagles, otters and whales.
Whether you are currently coming towards the end of your training, looking for a rewarding career opportunity, or a 'taster' period in remote and rural healthcare before making more permanent career choices, please contact us for an informal chat, to find out more about this exciting team and discuss this opportunity.
