Rotation contracts

Ireland’s public health service, the Health Service Executive or HSE operates a rotation system for Non Consultant Hospital Doctors (NCHDs). Under the rotation system, Non-Consultant Hospital Doctors – at Registrar and Senior House Officer (SHO) level-move position within Ireland’s public hospitals every six months, each January and July. At Registrar and Specialist grades, 12 month contracts from July to July are also common. The rotation system creates a huge number of opportunities within the Health Service Executive or HSE.

At any time of year, TTM Healthcare would love to speak to doctors interested in rotational roles in Anaesthetics, Emergency Medicine, General Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Paediatrics, Surgery, Psychiatry and any other discipline.

Registration with the Irish Medical Council is essential for these roles.
