This really could be the opportunity you have been looking for a chance to live and work in an area of outstanding natural beauty with unparalleled opportunities for outdoor pursuits and an excellent quality of life, coupled with a rewarding and interesting clinical case mix.

We need an individual who has a solid grounding in emergency care to join our extremely friendly and clinically dynamic team and help us deliver care to the ever growing population of Inverness and the Highlands. Your core experience could be in any one of a range of acute specialties including (but not exclusively) emergency medicine, anaesthetics, surgery, acute medicine or general practice. The suitable individual will need to have spent a period of time working in an emergency department as this post is designed to enhance the experienced clinical decision making capacity and practical skill mix in the department during the peak periods of activity i.e. afternoons and evenings. While it is appreciated that applicants might not have all relevant resuscitation courses fully up-to-date it would certainly be relevant to have ETC/ATLS and ALS type experience and ideally some experience and/or training in the emergency care of children.


This post is based in Raigmore Hospital, which is the principal Emergency Department in the Highlands providing services to Inverness and the wider Highland region. This includes being the regional Trauma Unit covering over 10,000 square miles and a population of 320,000. We have a diverse and stimulating case mix across all age ranges and presentations, with over 40,000 attendances per annum.

You will be based in the modern Emergency Department of Raigmore Hospital and join our established team of 8.6 WTE Consultants, 14 part-time Emergency Practitioners, 4 Specialty Doctors (including this post), 11 Trainee/Clinical Fellow doctors as well as emergency nurse practitioners.

Although there is a core rota (1 in 4) covering the key periods 7 days a week it should (with mutual agreement) allow a degree of flexibility such that the post holder could potentially combine this post with other roles. Opportunity for personal professional development is embedded within the rota and very much supported.

Informal enquiries would be welcomed by Dr Mike Rennie, Service Clinical Director michael.rennie@nhs.scot or Dr Kirsteen Wintour, Specialty Doctor in Emergency Medicine & Educational Advisor for SAS Doctors and Dentists in Highland kirsteen.wintour@nhs.scot. Alternatively contact can be made via the department secretary on .
