Islanders employ social media to find GP

Created:

A Scottish island has turned to social media to help recruit a resident GP.

The 200-strong community on Jura has been without a permanent doctor for more than a year, and has had no luck with recruitment.

It has now posted the job details on Facebook, and is appealing for the advert to be shared as widely as possible across the global site.

The page says: ‘It’s a dream job for the right person.’

There is also a bottle of whisky on offer as a ‘finder’s fee’.
