A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic doctor to join our team.

We would like to recruit a Specialty Doctor to cover 6 x sessions per week over 3 days on a fixed term contract for one year, with the possibility of an extension.

The successful applicant will work as part of a dedicated consultant-led multidisciplinary specialist palliative care team at Ardgowan Hospice. This includes an 8 bed Inpatient Unit, Day Hospice and Outpatient Clinic, together with Community, Information & Support and Hospital Palliative Care Teams. This post will be based at our Inpatient Unit, but will be an integral part of the palliative care service covering the Inverclyde Community.

The successful applicant needs to be a MRCP and/or MRCGP. We are also looking for a doctor who can work independently although supervision and support will be provided by 2 part-time Consultants. Applicants will be expected to participate in an out of hour’s rota with other Specialty Doctors and sessional GPs.

Greenock is only 30 minutes by train from Glasgow and easily commutable by car. It is in a stunning location next to the Clyde which boasts active boating and watersports activities and overlooking Argyll which is only 20 minutes away by ferry and offers incredible outdoor experiences as well as being the gateway to the Highlands.

Surrounding areas offer good family facilities including excellent schools (both public and fee paying).

Interview dates will take place on Wednesday 4th July.
