NHS Shetland is looking to recruit GPs for a variety of posts, which includes the option of working in the Out of Hours service. As well as working in General Practice, posts can be designed around your particular areas of interest, working across primary and secondary care.

Sessions are negotiable and we would be pleased to have a discussion with you as to how we can best meet your aspirations. We have vacancies in our island practices, where the GPs undertake their own Out of Hours, and we have vacancies on Mainland Shetland, in practices of varying sizes.
We have a strong education ethos and are very supportive of new and experienced GPs. Successful applicants will work within a supportive team, with good educational opportunities available on island. Applicants will be registered with the General Medical Council and will be on the GP Register by the time of appointment, with no restrictions to practice. Successful applicants will also be required to meet the criteria for joining the NHS Shetland Performers List before they take up post.

Whilst 8 out of our 10 practices are staffed by salaried GPs, employed by NHS Shetland, if there was interest in taking on a practice as an independent business we would be happy to discuss your proposal.

Shetland offers low pollution, low crime, excellent schools, great leisure facilities, unique wildlife and amazing scenery, whilst still only a short flight away from the UK mainland. To find out more about Shetland go to
