Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist
Guernsey, Channel Islands
Renowned for its sandy beaches and granite cliffs, mild and sunny climate and close proximity to France, Guernsey offers a high quality of life in a beautiful environment. The unique Consultant-only healthcare system offers a combination of high-quality medicine and continuity of care.
The Medical Specialist Group is a partnership with 47 consultants, providing secondary healthcare free at the point of delivery under contract to the island’s government, the States of Guernsey.
We are looking for an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist who has the skills to manage a broad variety of obstetric and gynaecological patients. To complement the existing special interests in the department, we wish to appoint a Consultant with an Obstetric special interest to be our Labour Ward Lead.
Each of our seven O&G Consultants is resident whilst on-call.
The Princess Elizabeth Hospital has approx. 650 deliveries annually, a level 2 neonatal unit, excellent ultrasound facilities, four theatres, ICU, MRI and CT. We manage the vast majority of patients on-island, whereas complex gynaecological cancer surgery and IVF is performed through tertiary links in the UK.
The post allows for a generous 35 days paid holiday and 10 days of fully-funded study leave annually, in addition to fully-funded off-island attachments which are encouraged. Other benefits include a full relocation package, private family medical insurance, mobile phone contract and GMC subscription. The income tax rate for Guernsey is currently a flat rate of 20%, and there is no VAT, capital gains tax or inheritance tax.
Guernsey offers excellent sporting, leisure and recreation opportunities for adults and children alike, and a minimal daily commute. The island has air links to Southampton, Gatwick and several UK regional airports and to Dinard in France, while there are also ferry services to Poole, Portsmouth and St Malo.
Applicants should be on the specialist register or be within six months of obtaining their CCT / CESR at the time of interview. Established consultants are welcome to apply.
