Borders General Hospital is a modern and well-equipped 284 bed DGH serving the rural borders area in South East Scotland, approximately 36 miles from Edinburgh. Great outdoor activities are on the doorstep along with good schools and affordable housing. House prices in the Borders Region are significantly less than in major cities in the U.K. and also less than many other rural parts of the country. See the borders property website at: www.bspc.co.uk
The Borders Railway operates a train service to central Edinburgh running every thirty minutes (journey time 50 minutes approx). This allows you to have the best of both worlds. Healthy wide open spaces within easy reach of a beautiful major city.
Patients are at the heart of everything we do in our daily working lives at NHS Borders. We ensure they are safe and catered for efficiently and effectively by suitably experienced and qualified staff, driving quality at the heart of patient care. The rural nature of the region ensures short lines of communication between customers, local authority, community organisations and service providers. It also helps us face the problems other NHS organisations have with courage and a feeling of being part of a team.
We are a dynamic and forward thinking organisation with a wealth of clinical and leadership experience. We aim for an open and honest culture and believe in nurturing future stars in NHS.
A relocation package/assistance with temporary accommodation in the local area is available for the successful candidates.
