Job description

NHS Grampian is delighted at the prospect of recruiting two Consultant Anaesthetists to Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin. These Full-Time Posts will primarily be based at Dr Gray’s Hospital.   Specialist Interest will be encouraged and there may be an opportunity, if appropriate, for interested and suitably qualified applicants to work at other Hospitals within Grampian. Colleagues with an interest in Remote and Rural Anaesthesia Practice within the North of Scotland, Highlands and Islands are also welcome to apply. Individualised Job Planning can be tailored to the requirements of the service and applicants. The Scottish Government have recently committed to developing services at Dr Gray's in support of a full Consultant led Obstetric service. An initial £5 million funding package has been announced. The Anaesthetic department plans to expand to a team of at least 12 Consultants; recruit additional Anaesthetic staff to provide a 24/7 resident rota and ensure compliance with Royal College of Anaesthetist guidelines.

Dr Gray’s Hospital is situated in Elgin, the County town of Moray in the North-East of Scotland. Inverness lies 35 miles to the West with Aberdeen 65 miles to the East. We are Scotland’s smallest District General Hospital. The Anaesthetic service is currently under full review in terms of staffing and function: work is underway to establish an expanded Consultant tier.

Full registration with a licence to practise with the GMC is required. For more information visit .

Those trained in the UK should have evidence of higher specialist training leading to CCT or be within 6 months of confirmed entry on the GMC Specialist Register from date of interview. 

Alternatively, applicants should possess a CESR / CESR (CP).    

Applications from doctors with appropriate specialist training and experience who are not listed on the GMC Specialist Register can be considered for a Locum Consultant post (up to 12 months) if no substantive Consultant appointment is made.  Whilst in locum employment, an application to obtain a CESR / CESR (CP) and entry onto the Specialist Register can be made. 

If you are interested in joining the Anaesthetic Team at Dr Gray’s we would be delighted to invite you to visit the Hospital and speak to our Clinicians about the work of the department as well as an insight to the recreational activities in the surrounding area.

Interested prospective candidates should contact: Dr Marek Wolanski, Consultant Anaesthetist and Clinical Lead. Telephone 01343 567317 or email
