This post is an excellent opportunity to develop acute care skills, supported by a motivated and highly-skilled multi-disciplinary team, based in a modern and purpose-built hospital in one of the most beautiful areas in Scotland. Galloway is ideally placed with easy access to Glasgow, Dumfries, Carlisle and with regular ferries to Ireland. The house prices are very competitive and there are excellent schools. The hospital has a 20 bedded acute ward, a 26 bedded rehabilitation ward, also used for step-down care, and a busy A&E department, seeing about 15,000 cases per year.

ALS, ATLS and APLS are all required to be kept up to date and many of the courses are available locally. We envisage in the future that you will regularly rotate through the consultant-led units in DGRI, particularly anaesthetics, A&E and acute medicine. The hospital also has nurse-led units for obstetrics, renal dialysis and chemotherapy. This post would suit a candidate with MRCGP or equivalent who was looking to widen their experience and spend more time in acute care. The post is full time, 44 hours per week, but part time and job share options will be considered. Applicants are required to be on the GMC Register with a Licence to Practice and will hold CCT or be within 6 months of obtaining the certificate in either Acute Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Anaesthetics or General Practice.
