There are also a variety of small local shops, local

community halls, primary schools with a secondary department at Aith, small boats & harbours, a lifeboat station in Aith, rowing clubs, various tourist attractions & beautiful viewpoints etc.  The Aith Junior High has an excellent reputation for higher education.


The local Community Council has prepared a briefing for applicants, which will be sent as part of the application pack.  For more info on the Westside, plus photos, go to


The incoming GP will be supported by a dedicated, friendly and supportive practice team in a well structured environment.  The GP currently sees about 20 patients in face to face consultations each day, with 15 minute appointments and averages about 2-3 visits a week.


NHS Shetland is the most northerly Health Service in the country and a unique setting in which to develop your career. We are a tight-knit organisation with approximately 700 staff looking after the health needs of some 23,000 people spread across 15 islands. We follow a highly professional ethos that characterises every aspect of our operations. All in all you’ll find a superb degree of professionalism allied to a practical, resolute approach to the challenges of working in a remote island setting


We are open to discussion regarding different models for delivering care, so if you are interested in working part time or want to develop a portfolio career incorporating other roles elsewhere, please get in touch. If you would like to discuss taking on this practice as an independent practice, we would be happy to have that conversation with you. Successful candidates will have the option to develop specialist interests e.g. paediatrics, obstetrics, dermatology etc should this be of interest.  Several of our GPs have worked with Promote Shetland to develop short video clips detailing what it is like to live and work in Shetland and you can access the clips here:
