NHS Dumfries and Galloway serve a population of approximately 148,500 within a large geographical area of about 2,400 square miles. Dumfries and Galloway stretches from Langholm in the East to Drummore in the West, and from Kirkconnel and Carsphairn in the North down to Sandyhills on the Solway Coast. The Health Board currently employs around 4500 staff excluding GPs and Dentists.

The new Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary, which opened in 2017, is a 344 bed state of the art hospital based in Dumfries. It is the main hospital for the region providing a wide range of inpatient and outpatient health services. The Galloway Community Hospital, which serves Stranraer and the west of the region, is an intermediate unit providing maternity services, as well as medical & surgical beds. There are bedded units within eight cottage hospitals which provide care services such as minor injuries units.  Midpark Hospital provides inpatient facilities for mental health patients.

Dumfries and Galloway is a beautiful and mostly undiscovered part of Scotland. This post would suit a doctor who enjoys walking, running, cycling, mountain biking and other outdoor activities.  We are only a 90 minute drive away from the Lake District. We are also close enough to Glasgow, Edinburgh and Carlisle for those who enjoy the bright lights and city life.
