Have you ever thought about a better work life balance? Ever thought about working in unique locations with incredible landscapes & experiencing a different way of life? At Head medical we work with several NHS trusts located in amazing rural locations which can offer you all of these and more!

I currently have several urgent requests for General Physician’s, some with various sub-specialities required for 12 month Contracts (initially) in breath taking locations such as:

  • The Shetland Isles
  • The Western Isles
  • The Scottish Borders 
  • Carmarthenshire

From the amazing scenery & unique wildlife of the Shetland Isles to the incredible sights of the Brecon Beacons in Carmarthenshire, all of these locations not only offer a great work/ life balance but also the opportunity to enjoy many outdoor activities & historic venue excursions these locations have to offer. If you are not so adventurous and prefer to be close to major cities, I have positions within an hour of fantastic cities such as Edinburgh & Cardiff to name a few.

The trusts I am recruiting for can offer you a 12 month fixed term contracts initially, where specialist registration is not necessarily required, with a view to going fully substantive if you wish after the 12 months is up.

Salaries are dependent on experience & range from £77,000.00 - £105,000.00 per annum plus out of hours supplement if job plan dictates. The trusts will also provide a generous relocation package to help you make the transition as smooth as possible, along with Visa sponsorships if required.

You may already be in the NHS & keen to explore more adventurous locations, you may be practicing abroad & keen to use the GMC registration you have obtained but unsure of how to maximise your chances of successfully gaining employment here or you may be an ST7 within 6 months of your CCT & looking for your first Consultant post, whatever your situation I will be able to advise accordingly.
If you are interested in exploring any of the opportunities I have, do not hesitate to contact me for an informal chat about your circumstances & of course any suitable posts for you.
To qualify for any of these roles, you must have a GMC registration with a current license to practise, if your GMC is need of reinstating , that is fine. If you are from outside the EEA (Europe) you will need to at least have a date set for your PLAB 2 exam as a minimum. If you are in any doubt as towards your suitablility ,do not hesitate to contact me on my details below for clarification.

If you are happy where you are but know of someone who may be interested in one of our fantastic locations or in need or a better work life balance, I can pay £500 per any successfully recommended candidates,

Look forward to hearing from you.
