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

We have GP vacancies in various locations: in our remote practice in Walls, on the west side of mainland Shetland; and on the island of Unst, in the very North of Shetland. Both of these are single-handed practices. Single-handed practitioners receive additional remuneration and leave allowances to compensate for out-of-hours cover. We are open to discussion regarding different models for delivering care, so if you are interested in working part time, day time only or want to develop a portfolio career incorporating other roles elsewhere, please get in touch. If you would like to discuss taking a remote practice as an independent practice, we would be happy to consider. Successful candidates will have the option to develop specialist interests e.g. paediatrics, obstetrics, 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: http://www.shetland.org/60n/video/1 / http://www.shetland.org/discover/live-here/health

The Walls Community Council have also prepared a website showcasing the area http://thewonderfulwestside.weebly.com/

For an informal discussion please contact Lisa Watt, Service Manager, Primary Care on 01595 743209 (email e.watt1@nhs.net) or Dr Gilbert Ozuzu, Medical Director on 01595 743486 (email g.ozuzu@nhs.net)
