UK's Most Northerly Health Board
NHS Shetland is the most northerly Health Service in the country and a unique setting in which to develop your career. We are, of course, a small organisation, with circa 650 staff looking after the health needs of some 23,000 people spread across 15 islands. However, what we lack in size, we more than make up for by way of the tight-knit, highly professional ethos that characterises every aspect of our operations.
Our job – your job should you care to join us – is to provide healthcare services to, and strive to improve the overall health of, the population of this most delightful part of the British Isles. As well as the Gilbert Bain Hospital there are Local Community Services provided via GPs, AHPs and Community Nurses. All in all, you’ll find a superb degree of professionalism allied to a practical, resolute approach to the challenges of providing healthcare in a remote island setting.
