Our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations. 

We are a rural & remote practice serving 2,500 people of all ages, covering a large geographical area of East Sutherland. This is a beautiful rural county in Scotland that has one of the lowest population densities in Western Europe. Our patients primarily live in the main settlements of Brora and Helmsdale, but we have a significant number who live in sparsely-populated crofting settlements and farms along Strath Brora and Strath Kildonan. It can take our GPs over an hour to reach some of our most outlying patients on home visits.
In addition to providing comprehensive primary health care to our patients, our GPs also help to run the community hospital and minor injuries unit at the Lawson Memorial Hospital each week

Get Well, Keep Well

Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
