Be a Rural GP and rediscover the joy of General Practice!

Arran Medical Group is looking for a GP to join our well-established, friendly team. The role would be on a three quarter to full time basis, with ‘Out of Hours’ commitments, covering the local hospital, A&E and ‘on call’ GP services.

The Isle of Arran is a beautiful and special place to live and work. The island is a 50 minute ferry journey from the Ayrshire coast, with onward travel to Glasgow in under an hour.

This is a rare chance to work in a GP role outside the norm of day to day urban GP services. We retain a good quality of life and work life balance with a less onerous, more relaxed day to day working role.

  • Hugely satisfying and varied role with focus on sustainable working patterns and caring for each other
  • Traditional GP practice mixed with community hospital, special interest and Out of Hours work
  • Typical GP day of 25-28 patient contacts
  • GP training and Medical Students. Well established team of 8 GPs.
  • Support team includes ANP, CLW, Pharmacist, Physiotherapy, Mental Health Worker and Dispensary
  • Well remunerated, generous study leave and annual leave package
  • 10K Golden Hello plus relocation expenses
  • Salaried or Partnership applications considered
