Isle of Man - Consultant Careers

We are looking to appoint a driven, enthusiastic and reliable Consultant in Anaesthesia to join our Anaesthetic Department at Nobles Hospital in the Isle of Man.

We believe the Island is a great place to live and work and within this diverse role you will have the opportunity to provide anaesthetic services for all the major specialities (excluding neuro and cardiac surgery), plus care of patients in our ICU. In addition, our team also provide a Consultant-led pain service and provide an anaesthetic service in our obstetric theatre and epidural service. 

The Island also provides an Air ambulance service for the transfer of critically ill patients to the UK and this post provides an opportunity to be trained to provide anaesthetic support for these transfers. We are looking for someone who is keen to be trained in new areas and will work together with our Anaesthetic team to provide first class service across the Isle of Man hospital.

  • relaxed way of life in a safe environment with low crime
  • Fantastic lifestyle opportunities - You could enjoy an outdoor lifestyle - walking, diving, sailing, mountain biking and great beaches
  • Low income tax rates, maximum rate being 20%

At Noble's hospital, we also take pride in being able to offer a workplace that:

  • Is equipped to the latest standards
  • Offers brilliant training and development opportunities - we have an Education and Training Centre with a simulation suite and library situated in the grounds 
  • Supports staff - we recognise the need for all medical staff on the Island to maintain connections with medicine in the United Kingdom, and we provide generous study Leave with pay and expenses to attend approved conferences and workshops.
  • Has a great working environment - we're a close knit team who are driven to ensure we provide high quality healthcare services to the people on the island
