CONSULTANT ANAESTHETIST

WHOLE TIME

JOB REFERENCE MS12023089


Are you confident and capable in a broad range of emergency and clinical scenarios? Do you value a good work-life balance? Are you looking to work somewhere where you are a valued team member and can shape your career and future? Would you enjoy having time to deliver excellence?

We are looking for you.

As a full time Consultant Anaesthetist you will work closely with our existing 2 Consultant Anaesthetists as well as the Medical and Surgical teams of the Hospital, to deliver a first rate service to the population of Lochaber and beyond.


Situated at the foot of Ben Nevis, Fort William is often referred to as the outdoor capital of the UK. The Belford Hospital has an established reputation in the management of trauma, particularly from mountaineering accidents, skiing and mountain biking and also undertakes a variety of appropriate elective surgery (including colorectal). The acute specialties of Medicine and Surgery are supported by modern, comprehensive Anaesthetic services. All specialties provide 24/7 (non resident) consultant cover (including cover for A&E), this is supported by a well-equipped HDU, comprehensive laboratory and radiology services (including on-site ultrasound and CT). The on call frequency is being offset by a lighter workload during the working week. We manage our emergency cases on site, care is consultant led and delivered. Resuscitation and stabilization of the critically ill or severely injured to allow transfer to definitive care, regional intensive care unit or tertiary centres forms a major part of our workload. Our clinical services are highly valued by the local population and also by the large tourist population.

Your personal development as a doctor and the maintenance of your clinical skills are well supported. Video conferencing, national support networks, local and organisational level support are in place to ensure your specialist skills are valued and maintained.


Come and be part of our team in a place where you can provide high quality medical care whilst living in the most spectacular scenery in the British Isles. Away from work you can enjoy life in a vibrant community, with excellent indoor facilities in addition to the obvious attractions of the great outdoors. And if you want to swap the Northern Lights for the "bright lights", you are within reach of Glasgow and Edinburgh, while London is only a Sleeper-train away.


This post is offered on a ten programmed activity basis as outlined in the proposed job plan. The frequency of on-call is 1:3 for weekdays (Mon-Thu) and 1:4 for weekends (Fri-Sun). The on-call frequency attracts a supplement of 8% in line with the Terms and Conditions of Service. The successful applicant will be required to have wide knowledge and experience in anaesthesia and critical care. Applicants must be on the GMC Specialist Register or be within 6 months of obtaining their CCT at the time of interview.


Informal enquiries to Dr Katrina Gannon, Consultant Anaesthetist on 01397 702481 or Anne Boyd-Mackay, Rural General Hospital Manager on 01397 702481.
