Clinical Fellow / Specialty Doctor in Palliative Medicine (6 months fixed term)
Highland Hospice is looking to recruit a new doctor to join an established team of two Consultants, a Specialty Doctor and a rotational GP Trainee in providing a specialist resource for the delivery of palliative care in the Scottish Highlands. This six-month post is based in Inverness at the Highland Hospice, which houses a 12-bedded inpatient unit, community support and other outpatient services. The Hospice clinical staff provide advice and ongoing clinical support to the acute and community hospitals run by NHS Highland and work closely with primary care teams to support individuals, their carers and health professionals in what is largely a remote and rural setting.
There is a 1:4 weekday and 1:5 weekend non-resident first on-call rota shared with other medical staff with Consultant second-on-call cover.
The post provides a unique opportunity to gain training and experience, applicable to any career in medicine, with a well-established service. Applications are also welcome from doctors with experience in specialist palliative care, the extent of which will be reflected in the starting salary.
You will be fully registered with the GMC and have completed, at least, Foundation Training.
If you have been superannuated within the NHS in the previous 12 months, you will be eligible to apply to continue your contributions under this Scheme.
The applicant will work as part of a multi-professional inter-disciplinary team and should have an understanding of, and be committed to, the work of the Highland Hospice.
This post is subject to a PVG check.
