Salaried GP – 40 hours per week

An Caorann Medical Practice

An Caorann Medical Practice – Portsoy

Come and join our relaxed and friendly rural practice set in the picturesque North-East of Scotland. The area is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts with walking, watersports, multiple golf courses and wildlife watching opportunities nearby – all helping to contribute towards an important work/life balance.

This exciting opportunity has arisen to work with our practice which operates between the main site in Portsoy and branch in Aberchirder.  We have a practice population of 5,300.  The practice has access to the local, completely refurbished, Chalmers Community Hospital with a Minor Injuries Unit and  GP medical unit with full support services and visiting consultant outpatient clinics. The Minor Injuries unit can carry out near-patient testing and has telemedicine links to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary

There is an excellent community team and there are regular practice based small group learning sessions held with neighbouring practices.  There are tele-education facilities within the hospital.

The post provides an opportunity to provide holistic care in an area of outstanding natural beauty.  There may be opportunities to develop a special interest within this post.

There is no out of hours commitment although sessions are available locally.

This is an exciting time to join our practice as there may be opportunity in the future to take the practice to an independent status and shape the future of medical care in the Banff area.

We would welcome anyone interested in working blocks of week.

Golden Hello and relocation payments may be available for the right candidate.

Full registration with a licence to practise with the GMC is required. For more information visit
