An exciting opportunity has become available for an experienced Consultant General Surgeon to work in an excellent rural general hospital located in the West of Scotland. This post will suit somebody who enjoys true general surgery, and is also trained in emergency general surgery.

Located in a fabulous location which will allow you easy access to Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Scotland, and a huge range of outdoor pursuits, from climbing to skiing, all literally on your doorstep. With a relatively low permanent population, this area is a huge tourist draw which can increase numbers three or four times this during the peak summer and winter tourism months.

The hospital has an established reputation in the management of trauma, particularly from mountain accidents but also undertakes a variety of appropriate elective major surgeries. With three acute specialties of Surgery, Medicine and Anaesthesia having 24/7 consultant cover (which also covers A&E).
