Applications are invited for a Consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, to provide services at Raigmore Hospital and outreach clinics at our Community Midwifery Units (Skye, Fort William and Caithness).

We seek a doctor to complement our current eleven Consultants, four Specialty Doctors, four Specialty Registrars and six FY2/GPST’s, who will work as a co-operative, committed and capable member of our collegiate consultant team; all applicants whose specialist skills and interests will support and complement those of existing colleagues are welcomed.

There is an Early Pregnancy Assessment Unit and an Obstetric Day Unit. Specialist clinics include a joint diabetic antenatal clinic, maternal medicine clinic, fetal medicine clinic, fast-track gynaecology clinic, colposcopy clinic, unintended pregnancy clinic, and an outpatient hysteroscopy service. Raigmore Hospital is a gynaecology-oncology cancer unit and part of NOSCAN (North of Scotland Cancer Network) with close links to the Gynae-oncology Cancer Centre at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. 

The Department participates in the teaching programme for medical undergraduates from Aberdeen University. Specialist trainees in the North of Scotland Deanery rotate to and from Aberdeen. The recently completed Centre for Health Sciences includes a modern Postgraduate Centre with outstanding training resources including simulation centre, research facilities and excellent library facilities.

Applicants unable to work full-time will be eligible to be considered for the post and, if appointed, the job plan will be discussed on an individual basis.  Applicants should hold, or be eligible for CCT within six months of interview.

Raigmore Hospital is a modern District General Hospital with 454 beds. The department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology serves a wide population from Highland. There are approximately 2,000 deliveries per year and a broad range of obstetric and gynaecological services are provided.

Inverness is the capital of The Highlands of Scotland - a most wonderful area in which to live and work. It enjoys good road, rail and air links to both the north and south.

NHS Scotland is reducing their full time working week from 37.5 to 37 hours per week from 1 April 2024 but with no change in pay.  This reduction will also be applied pro rata for part time staff.  This advert and any subsequent offer/contract of employment therefore reflects the new working hours.  However, as not all service areas will be able to adopt the 37 hour working week immediately from 1 April 2024, you may be required to work up to an additional 30 minutes per week for a temporary period for which you would be paid until the service you are working in changes rosters or working patterns to accommodate the new reduced working week.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Recruiting Board.
