The Gibraltar Health Authority invites applications from a suitably qualified Clinical Fellow who by virtue of their citizenship are entitled to take up employment and who are, or on employment will be, resident in Gibraltar.


Applications are invited from qualified doctors, with at least 2 years of training in anaesthesia and some experience of intensive care medicine, as they will be first on call with a Consultant 2nd on call from home. UK trained applicants should have completed CT2 Anaesthetics or CT3 ACCS-Anaesthesia, though primary FRCA is not required. Senior registrars seeking OOPE/OOPP/OOPT and post CCT anaesthetists looking for a year away before starting their first consultant job have also joined the team and found the post to be a tremendously worthwhile and enjoyable one.


Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory at the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula, easily reached in just over 2 hours (flying time) from London, Bristol or Manchester airports. The post is based at the St. Bernard’s Hospital located by the waterfront, overlooking the straits of Gibraltar & Northern Africa. The area is perfect for those wishing to explore Southern Spain, Portugal and North Africa. English is the official main language with Spanish widely spoken.


The Gibraltar Health Service is organized and modelled on UK NHS and follows traditions of British medical practice. Applicants must be registered with the Gibraltar Medical Board Registry or UK General Medical Council with a license to practice. There is a GMC exemption for candidates from Australia & New Zealand who are registered with their home equivalents. Non-native English speakers must have a good command of English.


This is not a recognized training post but provides excellent opportunity for research and training. Most of the recent fellows have obtained training posts after their placement in Gibraltar.


The department has been approved for CT3 equivalence and out of programme training (OOPT) by the Royal College of Anaesthetists and General Medical Council. St Bernard’s Hospital forms part of the Gibraltar School of Anaesthesia on the lifelong learning platform and at present is part of the South West Deanery.


The job and rota are EWTD compliant comprising less than 48 hours on average per week including non-clinical sessions to help with continuing professional development.


Further information on the duties and responsibilities of the post are available from Dr Jan Novak, Clinical Director of Anaesthesia & Intensive Care –
