We are seeking to appoint a Specialty Doctor to enhance our services - in our newly built hospital, which allows more flexibility and plenty of scope for you to develop within the department.

You must hold full registration with the General Medical Council, and have completed at least four years full-time post-graduate training [or equivalent in part-time posts].

Bristol City Centre is just 15 minutes away and has a fantastic array of shops, theatres and restaurants.
