If you were formerly on an NHS Performers List and wish to find out more about returning to general practice in Scotland, this website provides a range of useful information:
Are you missing Scotland? Are you contemplating returning? Now is a good time – coming back to General Practice in Scotland couldn’t be easier!
Scotland needs its trained GPs back. With the development of a new GMC contract underway, more investment in General Practice, access to the NHS pension scheme and a health service that is arguably one of the best in the world, there is much to commend working as a General Practitioner in Scotland right now. Why not come back to enjoy our four seasons of weather (sometimes in one day), our diversity of culture and proximity to the rest of the world. Scotland is more than ever a wonderful place to live and work.
Depending on your personal circumstances, you may need nothing more than a simple, 2-4 week induction programme, managed by the Health Board whose Performers’ List you choose to join in co-operation with the Scotland Deanery. So no entry assessments, no additional costs when you can least afford it and no lengthy waits to get back into a substantive post.
If you have worked in NHS General Practice before and are currently working in a clinical post comparable to General Practice in the UK (for example in Australia, New Zealand or Canada).
