It is a good time to be training as a GP in the North of Scotland. An article in one of our local newspapers this week has highlighted the shortage of GPs that is starting to occur in the North and how this is likely to increase in the coming years.
As well as an increasing number of partnership vacancies we also have a career start scheme that offers the opportunity to develop a special interest whilst also working in one of our local GP practices. This year we have 4 posts in Aberdeen City and 7 posts in Aberdeenshire, the posts being part funded by NHS Grampian and the local GP practices. These posts have an educational component are an excellent opportunity to find your feet in general practice.
So come to the North of Scotland, not just to train, but to stay for good!
