General practice or Nursing in the rural Highlands of Scotland is not what you might expect. Hands-on and enormously varied, rural primary care challenges you to be the very best you can be.

You will take a step out from behind your desk. You will deal with emergencies, your home visits might be via a boat trip, and with more time to spend with each patient, there is a special emphasis on quality of care.

Becoming a rural GP or a member of the rural support team allows you to enhance your career portfolio not only through research, teaching and training, but also by embracing the unique challenges and opportunities presented by rural practice.

Whether you are responding to a road accident before the emergency services have time to arrive, or helping shape new rural healthcare services, you are always learning and improving.

And, added to all of this is the fact you will be living and working within some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes.

NHS Highland is recruiting. This is your chance to be the practitioner you’ve always wanted to be.

Challenge yourself. Become a rural team player.
