This is a beautiful part of the world with a satisfyingly different lifestyle from the metropolitan centres. The diverse nature of Shetland’s culture, the stunning scenery, the wildlife, the local dialects as well as the spread of different islands all make for greater professional and personal challenges. Shetland is a world where wildlife is truly wild - otters and seals play in quiet coves and the air is full of the sound of wild birds crowding the jagged cliffs in huge and noisy colonies. There are regular sightings of killer whales and superb displays of rare sub-arctic flora.

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

An opportunity has arisen for a full time substantive salaried GP post. The postholder will be employed by NHS Shetland and will be based for 31 weeks of the year in Brae Health Centre, with the remaining weeks split between our other 9 health centres, covering annual leave, vacancies and short term ill health. All our practices use EMIS and DOCMAN. This is an exciting opportunity which will allow you to develop your skills. Working across the practices will give you an insight into the different size of practices we have in Shetland and successful candidates will have the option to develop specialist interests e.g. pediatrics, 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: /
