Medical Postion around Argiyle area.

Hey Folks;
I would appreciate you honest thoughts and insight.
I am a Physician Assistant (they are called Physician Associate in the UK) I am giving serious thought to relocate and work for the NHS for a period of time.
I would like to be in the highland regions.
How is the access to general health care? and I know I would be consider a NON Scottish medical provider (I do have Scottish Heritage and Irish Heritage along with Cherokee Indian) would there be reluctance to see a person like me?

There would be no reluctance to see a medical provider who is not Scottish. We have many fine medical staff from all over the world.

You will, of course, need to sort out a work permit.

PS Argyle and the Highlands are two very different areas!

Here's info on the training of Physician Associates in the UK, but it doesn't specifically show vacancies. The first thing would be to check the Home Office/UKBA site to check that it is an area where we are actively seeking foreigners to work here. The roles on that list are frequently changing.
