Practice Area

The Carradale surgery is a Dispensing Practice operated by a single handed doctor. The main surgery is in Carradale, 15 miles north of Campbeltown. The practice extends from Ballochgair in the south, along the East Coast of the Kintyre Peninsula, to Skipness in the north, including Claonaig Estate and many other small communities. The doctor consults at Skipness Village Hall every Wednesday.

The practice list is about 600, but because of dispensing, geographical spread and a significant number of holiday visitors, the workload is much busier than this number suggests.  More than half the practice is aged over 60.

As well as hospital beds there are Consultant Outpatient Clinics available at Campbeltown Hospital. Plain X-ray, Physiotherapy, and Day Hospital facilities are also readily available at the same location. Patients may also be referred to Glasgow and Oban for Hospital Care and Outpatient Appointments. A comprehensive Ambulance Service is operated throughout the area with emergency ambulances having a Paramedic onboard. A helicopter augments the Air Ambulance Service.
