Looking for a new and exciting challenge? Then think about working in NHS Forth Valley in the heart of Scotland.

NHS Forth Valley seeks to appoint an enthusiastic and highly motivated individual to join the emergency medicine team.  This post is a maternity leave cover and it is hoped that further substantive posts will be available subject to funding approval. The existing permanent medical staff team consists of 13 Consultants, 4 Emergency Medical Practitioners and 5 Specialty Doctors, providing senior care and leadership in Forth Valley’s Emergency Department.

It is expected that the successful applicant will have a high clinical profile with the drive and initiative to achieve and sustain the highest standards of emergency medical care. The new appointment will maintain the shop-floor presence of senior emergency physicians, enhancing consultant-delivered care and contributing to the supervision and shop-floor training of junior medical staff. Consultant support is also provided to a nurse-led Minor Injuries Unit at Stirling Community Hospital.
