Location

Edinburgh and the Lothians are on the eastern side of Scotland’s central belt in the heart of the country.  Four main areas make up Edinburgh and the Lothians – Edinburgh, East, Mid and West Lothian. 
 
Edinburgh and the Lothians are a place of exceptional beauty and contrast, from Edinburgh’s historic skyline to the scenic countryside and coastline that surround it.  Edinburgh is famous for its castle, military tattoo, fringe and international festival. 
 
Edinburgh and the Lothians are home to top-ranking state and private schools and world class universities and colleges.  Edinburgh offers a rich diversity of parks and gardens to spend time relaxing with friends and family.  Whether you want to buy or rent Lothian also offers a diversity of accommodation ranging from city centre based flats, waterfront living, Victorian or Georgian villas to more rural farm houses or coastal homes.  
 
Local and wider transport networks are excellent.  Glasgow is less than 50 minutes away by train.  The Scottish Highlands are accessible in a few hours offering opportunities for skiing and walking.  National and international transport links make it easy to keep in touch with friends and family.  London is a short, one hour, flight away and flight connections with London, Amsterdam and Paris offer a variety of international flight opportunities.

Teaching and Training Opportunities

NHS Lothian has one of the largest and some of the most successful teaching hospitals in Scotland.  We have a growing national and international reputation for medical teaching and research and are recognised as a centre of excellence.
 
We successfully train medics, nurses and other healthcare professionals from all over the UK and the world, many of whom choose to remain in employment with NHS Lothian and continue to contribute to the development of the organisation, promoting new techniques and going on to train the doctors, surgeons and nurses of tomorrow. 
 
 
In conjunction with England, Wales, Northern Ireland and NHS Education for Scotland (NES) NHS Lothian recruits junior medical staff both UK and worldwide.  We are committed to providing a high standard of medical education and are able to offer training in a variety of specialties at foundation and specialty level, with the majority of training posts in the South East of Scotland rotating  through Edinburgh and Lothian hospitals.
 
Information regarding training with links to the appropriate UK websites can be found at http://www.scotmt.scot.nhs.uk/ and http://nes.scot.nhs.uk/
 
We enjoy close links with the University of Edinburgh (http://www.ed.ac.uk/home) whose Medical School is renowned for preparing its medical students to become world-class doctors.  Alongside NHS Lothian, the University offers state-of-the-art medical teaching facilities at the Chancellors Building, including lecture theatres, seminar rooms, clinical skills training area, computing suites, as well as library facilities at the main university, Western General Hospital and Royal Hospital for Sick Children.
