The Gibraltar anaesthetic and intensive care consultant team of seven is expanding. We are looking for 5 trainees/fellows at intermediate to advanced training level to join us at the beginning of September 2017.

Applicants should have had at least 2 years of training in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine as they will be first on call with a consultant 2nd on call from home. They will be primarily responsible for theatres, ICU, obstetrics and emergencies and work a full shift resident rota, leading to an average of 48 hrs. per week. 

If you want exposure to working in a remote hospital with one to one consultant supervision then come and enjoy the Gibraltar Life style.
St Bernard’s Hospital is a 140 bed acute hospital serving a patient population of ca. 55,000. There are four theatres, including one in a dedicated Day Case Unit, which offer DGH level ENT, maxillo-facial, general (including colorectal and upper GI), urologic, orthopaedic,  trauma, obs & gynae and ophthalmic surgery in addition to a chronic pain list, giving the successful applicant a varied clinical workload. ICU is a well-equipped 12 bedded unit divided for ICU/HDU and CCU. Acute cardiac and neurosurgical patients are transferred to nearby Spain or the UK.

Gibraltar is a British dependency at the southernmost tip of the Iberian Peninsula, easily reached in just over 2 hours (flying time) from the UK. The posts are based at St Bernard’s Hospital, overlooking the Bay and Straits of Gibraltar and North Africa. The Gibraltar Health Service is organised and modelled on the UK NHS and follows traditions of British medical practice. Applicants must therefore be registered with the UK GMC with a licence to practise or alternatively be eligible for registration but must be already registered with a licence to practise upon commencement of employment.
The total remuneration is £70.000 per annum with income tax currently at 20-25% in Gibraltar. The appointment will be for a period of 12 months. Passages are payable in full.

Further information on the duties and responsibilities of the post are available from Dr Anders Svendsen, Clinical Director of Anaesthesia & Critical Care, email: anders.svendsen@gha.gi
