We are looking for four new dynamic colleagues with interests in upper limb, general orthopaedic trauma and/ or arthroplasty. The trauma rota will be 1 in 10 with a trauma fortnight commitment.  This is an exciting time to join NHS Forth Valley with our elective theatre expansion, and to improve trauma theatre throughput for our upper limb trauma and hip fracture patients.

You can look forward to a warm welcome and strong support from colleagues.  Our hospital is situated in the heart of Scotland, nestled against the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, and close to vibrant towns that are richly endowed with excellent cultural and sporting facilities, offering good transport links to Edinburgh and Glasgow.
