On call in Shetland: a cliff-hanging GP at the NHS's northern limits

The Guardian featured this excellent article on dr Susan Bowie, a GP in Hillswick on Shetland.  It explains why our Rural Track program is so important and can be so rewarding. Take 5 minutes out from your hectic day and see what life can be like as a remote and rural GP.

North of Scotland, Winter Sports Capital!

For all you winter sports enthusiasts, why would you not want this on your doorstep?  This was the Lecht ski area at 9.30 on Sunday morning, the sun had just come up, fantastic views across the Cairngorms and barely a person to be seen.

So why not come and train in the North of Scotland.  Our training practices in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire are within an easy drive of the Lecht and Glenshee whilst the Caledonian scheme practices are within easy reach of Aviemore and the Lecht.  Alternatively you can head westwards and join the Rural Track program with centres in Oban, handy for Glencoe, and Fort William which has Aonach Mor on its doorstep.

So if its winter sports that are your passion, there is only one destination for your training!

Life As A Rural GP On The Western Isles

What do you want from life? Less stress? More time to think? More time to look after your patients? A chance to connect with a small tight knit community? A chance to live closer to nature…. and further away from the traffic jams and frenetic lifestyles of modern existence?

Then why not consider our Rural track GP Specialty Training program.  Based around our rural general hospitals in Kirkwall, Lerwick, Stornoway, Oban, Wick and Fort William this program offers a fantastic opportunity to experience the rewards of rural general practice.

This video was produced by Dr Gerry Wheeler a GP on North Uist to promote their partnership post and gives a great feel for the Outer Isles and what they have to offer.
