Benbecula Medical Practice provides a wide range of GP-led services. At present, we have a vacancy for a GP partner. In 2018 we are lucky to have some regular support while we look for the right GP to join our team. We are sticking to a small pool of regular locums that have been recommended to us, so that they are familiar with our systems and our patients.

Our Practice nurses are qualified registered nurses with additional training. They can manage health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses also manage long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, run minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears. Two of our nurses are independent prescribers.
