Doctors

Our GPs provide overarching responsibility for patient care and handle most serious, acute and complex issues.

Our GPs work across the health service on Arran. As well as clinics in the GP practice they work in rotation to provide 24/7/365 Accident and Emergency and inpatient care at the island hospital in Lamlash

Arran Medical Group is a training practice

Throughout the sites we enjoy having local school pupils, students, trainees, rural fellows work with us – they bring fresh ideas and enthusiasm into the practice, and teaching is a natural role of being a doctor or nurse.  The trainees are fully qualified doctors and work under the supervision of a senior doctor.  Trainee doctors may sometimes ask to record consultations, but patients will always be asked in advance and given the choice of declining. These recordings are held securely within the practice and the only people who have access to these are the trainee and trainer. The trainer will review the videos with the trainee and give feedback – then the recordings are erased. This will help the trainee to improve their consultation skills if necessary.

We are grateful to our patients for their understanding, teaching sometimes makes appointments a bit longer, but often a bit more fun and interesting too.  It is a vital part of helping to educate and train the next generation of GPs too.
