Renowned for its sandy beaches and granite cliffs, mild climate and close proximity to France, Guernsey offers a high quality of life in a beautiful environment. The unique consultant-delivered healthcare system offers a combination of high-quality medicine and continuity of care.

This is a new Consultant post created to improve the care of older patients throughout the hospital and in the community, working together with three established Geriatric/GIM physicians.

The post holder will be expected to be on the GMC Specialist Register for Geriatrics and General Medicine, with considerable experience in both and would ideally have dual accreditation. The appointee will be expected to take part in the GIM on call rota for which they are first on-call without the support of junior doctors.

Guernsey does not have junior doctors and so consultants have more direct patient involvement and are able to provide excellent continuity of care. There is excellent support from the radiology department, with easy availability of MRI and CT. A new state of the art CT scanner and SPECT-CT will be installed in 2019. The MRI scanner is due to be upgraded in 2020.

The Medical Specialist Group is a partnership of currently 47 Consultants, which, under contract, provides specialist medical services to the Guernsey Health Service under a health care model that is different and separate to the NHS.

There are opportunities for private practice within the job plan and 10 days of fully funded study leave annually. The new appointee will be encouraged to develop an off-island attachment with a tertiary centre to maintain expertise.

Other benefits include a full relocation package; private health insurance and a generous salary (NB the income tax rate for Guernsey is currently 20% with no higher rates).

The Princess Elizabeth Hospital is a modern hospital of approximately 145 beds and there are strong clinical links with UK mainland centres, particularly Southampton General Hospital and Kings College Hospital.

Guernsey offers an outdoor lifestyle with outstanding leisure facilities and excellent provision of schools in both state and private sectors.
