A refreshing new healthcare career in an island community.
We have an exciting opportunity for GMC Specialist Registered Consultant Ophthalmologist to join the group.
About the Medical Specialist Group
We are a partnership of currently 55 Consultants, which, under contract, provides specialist medical services to the Guernsey Health Service with a health care model that is different and separate from the NHS. As well as providing contract care the MSG consultants also provide private care which is remunerated separately, but is carried out in both MSG and PEH facilities as there are no other private facilities on island. MSG administration and secretarial staff also support a consultant private practice. Tertiary care services are supplied by hospitals on the UK Mainland, mainly Southampton University Hospital, usually through contracted services.
The Princess Elizabeth Hospital is a modern hospital with approximately 145 beds and strong clinical links to UK mainland centres, particularly Southampton General Hospital and Kings College Hospital.
Our vision is to be internationally recognised as a centre of excellence for clinical care and loved by the Guernsey community.
Our purpose is to use our expertise and compassion to provide outstanding patient-centred services that improve the health of the community we serve.
A better work-life balance
If you’re searching for a dose of sea air or a better work-life balance, our island community has it all.
Renowned for its sandy beaches and mild climate, Guernsey offers an idyllic, family friendly, lifestyle with excellent connections to the UK, France, and beautiful nearby islands.
Our flexible working patterns and short journey times give you more time to enjoy life, whether that’s a paddleboard and beach BBQ with the family after work, an afternoon hiking the cliffs or catching up with friends at one of our many award-winning restaurants.
Our consultants and their families have also benefited from the excellent schools and the wide variety of activities on offer on the island.
