Salaried Doctor - Riverside Medical Practice

NHS Highland - More jobs by this advertiser

A salaried GP is sought for a position at Riverside Medical Practice working 6 to 8 sessions per week.

We are a group of three GP Practices covering urban and rural locations. Riverside is in the heart of Inverness, the capital of the Scottish Highlands. Situated on the picturesque River Ness, yet only a stroll from the city centre, it offers a typically vibrant and dynamic urban environment. Foyers is a small, rural, dispensing practice based on the eastern bank of Loch Ness, 20 miles south west of Inverness. Cromarty Medical Practice, is also a rural (non-dispensing) practice on the Black Isle, 25 miles to the north-east of Inverness. All practices are located in modern, purpose-built, efficient premises, with great staff.

We host GP trainees, FY2s and medical students at Riverside, offering experience at Foyers and Cromarty – and we are expanding training with ScotGEM this year. Other interests include minor surgery, occupational medicine, sports medicine, clinical leadership and medico-politics. We are keen to support doctors to either undertake traditional general practice or have a portfolio career – or both.
