Consultant General Physician with an interest in Geriatric Medicine

MSG, Guernsey

Competitive salary and benefits package.

We Offer:

 

  • Greater involvement in direct patient care
  • A change from NHS style healthcare
  • Less than 15 minute drive to work
  • Generous remuneration package

 

Renowned for its sandy beaches and granite cliffs, mild climate and close proximity to France, Guernsey offers a high quality of life in a beautiful environment. The unique consultant-delivered healthcare system offers a combination of high quality medicine and continuity of care.

We are seeking to appoint a Consultant General Physician with an interest in Geriatric Medicine.

This is a new Consultant post created to improve the care of older patients throughout the hospital and in the community, working together with 3 established Geriatric/GIM physicians.

The post holder will be expected to be on the GMC Specialist Register for Geriatrics and General Medicine, with considerable experience in both and would ideally have dual accreditation. The appointee will be expected to take part in the GIM on call rota for which they are first on-call without the support of junior doctors.

 Guernsey does not have junior doctors and so consultants have more direct patient involvement and are able to provide excellent continuity of care. There is excellent support from the radiology department, with easy availability of MRI and CT. A new state of the art CT scanner and SPECT-CT will be installed in 2019. The MRI scanner is due to be upgraded in 2020.

Enquiries can be made to Dr Steve Evans (email stevee@msg.gg) or Dr Nye Matthew (email AneurinM@msg.gg). Information packs are available from recruit@msg.gg or telephone the HR department on 01481 239988.
