Welcome and About NHS Shetland

Welcome to our site which has been set up specifically to give you information about our vacancies at NHS Shetland, the most northerly Health Board in the country and a unique setting in which to develop your career. We are a small organisation with around 650 staff looking after the health needs of some 23,000 people. However, what we lack in size, we more than make up for by way of the tight-knit, highly professional ethos that characterises every aspect of our operations throughout the island

Shetland, in keeping with other areas in the UK, is facing a period of unprecedented change in its public services. Investment in health and care services has been hugely successful, with people living longer and being able to live longer even though they may have more complicated health and care needs. We want to develop and sustain local services for our community, we have an excellent performance record of delivering high quality patient care and as an employer we work hard to ensure staff have a safe, professional and happy environment to work in – after all Shetland was voted in the top 10 as one of the happiest places to live in the UK.

Our schools are rated as some of the best in class and a new state of the arts modern High School has just been opened. Our crime rate is exceptionally low, Shetland is a place which is small enough to make you feel welcome, yet large enough to find peace and that unmistakable feeling of spacious freedom; a place of friendly, hospitable people; a place embracing both modern technology and traditional industries with a unique culture reflected in music, art and literature; a place where you can enjoy the long, light nights of "simmer dim"; where you can walk, fish, ride, swim... or just relax; a place which offers choice. We are proud of our heritage, our history and traditions and the services we provide to our community.

If you are looking for an indisputable higher quality of life, being valued for being a generalist and living and working in a great place then come along, join us and help us to lead and shape the future of services, where you will be valued, supported and encouraged.
