Would you love the chance to work in a professionally satisfying role, whilst living in one of the safest, least congested and most beautiful parts of the British Isles?

We are searching for a motivated and enthusiastic Specialty Doctor to join our forward thinking team on the Isle of Man.

The Isle of Man Government’s ambition is to build a new model of health and social care that delivers truly effective health and social care strategies in a way which is innovative and responsive to community needs. This is an exciting opportunity where you could be a part of shaping the Islands’ future health services.

Why you should join us in the Isle of Man...

The Island’s healthcare is provided by a National Health Service based on that in the United Kingdom but is independently financed and administered within the Isle of Man.  Many of the changes brought about to the UK National Health Service, as a consequence of the extensive reorganisations of recent years have not been adopted in the Isle of Man.
