Gibraltar is a British overseas territory at the Southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula. We have a semi-tropical climate and are surrounded on three sides by the sea. Gibraltar offers a fantastic base for exploring Spain and North Africa and there are several direct flights each day between Gibraltar and the UK. Nearby Malaga airport offers a large number of direct European and international flights. For the more adventurous Tarifa, the Spanish Kite surfing capital, is a 45 minute drive away and the Skiing resort of Sierra Nevada is a 3 hour drive inland.
The Gibraltar Health Authority is a public health provider closely modelled on the NHS.
The job and rota are EWTD compliant comprising less than 48 hours on average per week including non-clinical sessions to help with continuing professional development.
