A fantastic opportunity has arisen to become part of a small team providing excellent primary care services to the active and resilient community of Tongue.

With the transfer of Tongue practice to NHS Highland management, we are keen to develop the team to deliver safe, sustainable services across both practices. The current practice population of Tongue is 525. Sitting along the North Coast 500 route, this can increase slightly due to tourism throughout the year. There are links to the other salaried practices in the locality (Durness, Scourie and Kinlochbervie and Three Harbours, Caithness) and increasingly with the wider NHS Highland salaried practice network.

There is the opportunity of closer working and cross cover with Armadale surgery. The practice has the potential to become dispensing and staff include Receptionist/Dispensers, a Practice Manager and several visiting clinicians and support services. There are also plans to develop apprenticeships and some nursing capacity.

The practice offers in hours services only, with Out of Hours being provided
by NHS Highland Out of Hours Team. Due to the rurality, there is a requirement to undertake the Pre-Hospital Emergency Care / BASICS course, but staff can be supported to undertake this once in practice, if it has not previously been completed.

There is a North Coast redesign project underway with plans to improve ways of working and streamlining processes over the next few years. There is also a proposal for a new build in Tongue, housing GP services and other services too. Close working between practices will ensure the most flexible, attractive model going forwards.

This remote and rural practice is located in North Sutherland, offering stunning highland scenery, the most beautiful sandy beaches, along with diverse wildlife. With primary schools located in Tongue and Melvich, and Farr High School located in Bettyhill, it also lends itself to family life.

The successful candidate will have a remarkable opportunity to be part of this innovative and exciting new model of rural healthcare as it moves forward.
