A great opportunity has arisen for a Clinical Fellow in Emergency Medicine to join a small but punchy hospital group in North East Scotland for a period of up to 12 months

Relatively small hospital, with 185 beds serving a catchment population of about 132,000.

This particular hospital is the Smallest District General Hospital in Scotland and therefore offers the benefits of an experience aligned to Rural Medicine in a small friendly setting and the opportunity to work across specialties

The current bed complement is divided between General Surgery, Orthopaedic, Ophthalmology, General Medicine, Paediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Acute Medical Assessment Unit, a Stroke Rehabilitation Ward and a Day Case Ward. There is also a Consultant Led Psychiatric Service. The hospital has recently been redeveloped, with modern equipment and user-friendly facilities throughout and there is a library and a Postgraduate Medical Centre with 24/7 access and videoconferencing facilities.

The post holder will spend much of their time with other clinicians, staff, and medical students.

In collaboration with the successful applicant and Clinical Leads, it may well be possible to experience a second clinical specialty or hospital base in the 12-month period

What’s on offer for you?

  • Salary scale between £36,472 - £57,349

  • Clinical experience and practical skills are often gained where these would be hard to achieve in a larger teaching hospital environment.

  • A trust which supports, listens, and develops its staff helping create a positive and constructive organisational culture across the board.

  • The nearest beaches and forest trails are within ten minutes drive and the ski resorts of Cairngorm and the Lecht are within one hour’s drive.

  • The local rail station links to Aberdeen and Inverness and mainline rail services to Edinburgh and Glasgow. Aberdeen airport is approximately 90 minutes away, and Inverness 40 minutes, with domestic, island and international flight destinations.
