Please see below some of the comments from current doctors within St Andrews healthcare:

“The working environment is conducive for anyone wanting to learn and progress in medicine. In particular, you will have plenty of senior support and guidance. (I don’t know of any previous post I’ve worked in, in which I have had as much access to my Supervising Consultant/GP).
At St Andrew’s you will definitely feel you are a genuine and appreciated contributor to the Multidisciplinary Team. And, you will certainly feel you are making a positive difference in patient’s lives.”


We offer an excellent benefits package including pension, 41 days holiday, life cover, car lease scheme, free parking on all our sites, cycle to work scheme, childcare vouchers and more…


We welcome conversations and applications from high calibre candidates who can bring relevant skills to any areas of the complex and personalised casework that we undertake.
