Clinics & Services

In addition to GP consultations the practice follows the General Medical Services Contract for the provision of healthcare services. Many services are offered through the practice and by our colleagues working in the Mid Argyll Community Hospital building: 

Antenatal Clinic - Provided jointly by visiting consultants and midwives at the Mid Argyll Community Hospital Outpatients Department.

Baby Clinic - run by the health visitors for child developmental checks and immunisations. New parents can ask about sleeping, feeding and child health worries.

Child health drop-in clinic – with the health visitor, for immunisations and advice on health and development. Held on Wednesday afternoons in the child health consulting room.

Child immunisation clinics – The Health Board sends parents a letter when immunisation is due. Clinics take place between 1400-1600 on Wednesday afternoons.

Expectant and postnatal mothers group – hosted weekly by the health visitors on Thursday afternoons from 13:30 - 15:30 in the Community Centre. It’s a great opportunity to meet other mothers and babies. There are sometimes information sessions on child health and related topics from guest speakers.

Specialised Sexual Health and Reproductive Service - includes contraceptive implant, IUCD fitting, STI and HIV screening and counselling. Telephone appointments are available with the sexual health nurse who will give you advice, arrange follow-up with GP or redirect you as appropriate. Sexual health services, including coils and Implanon provision, are also available to patients not registered with the practice.
