Speciality Doctor/Salaried General Practitioner in Forensic Medicine

Applications are welcome for the above Permanent up to 40 hours per week post based in The Royal Edinburgh Hospital.

With the formation of Police Scotland in 2013 numerous exciting flexible opportunities have arisen as NHS Lothian are looking to appoint new Forensic Physicians as it looks to modernise & expand its existing forensic medical examination and police custody healthcare team. We are seeking enthusiastic committed General Practitioners with an MRCGP qualification and an interest in Forensic Medicine. These new positions are very flexible and can be tailored to fit around current clinical commitments with variable amounts of sessions per month to be mutually agreed. Most shifts are out of hours but some day work may be available. All positions would suit experienced General Practitioners looking for fascinating part- time work.

The role is varied and interesting with full on- the- job training given by NHS Lothian. The work is divided between custody healthcare & forensic medical examinations. We have an experienced autonomous team of nurse prescribers who manage patients in custody & coordinate and corroborate forensic examinations. Your role is to perform examinations and assessments of adults and children under the instruction of Police Scotland. This offers a diverse range of clinical presentations in an exciting & fluid environment.

We are permitted a privileged insight into the inner workings of the police & criminal justice system with occasional opportunities to present our findings in court. There are positions available in Lothian Borders Fife and Forth Valley with cross covers across all of the regions as required. Your own transport & driving license is essential. This unique opportunity has arisen as the reformation of Scottish police services coincides with a time when the role of the forensic medical examiner is quickly evolving & looking to gain full royal college status. Postgraduate examinations are currently available via the Faculty of Forensic and Legal Medicine (a sub faculty of the Royal College of Physicians) & offers good career development opportunities.
