GP Rural Fellowship

Rural Fellowship on Arran

100% success in supporting GPs into a career in Rural General Practice

The Isle of Arran has hosted a highly successful GP Rural Fellowship Programme since 2002. The Arran GP fellowship offers qualified GPs a year of supported training in rural practice. 

Brodick Bay Isle of Arran

The unique mix of care offered on Arran provides an excellent environment for training in rural practice. You will be supported by and become a core part of an experienced team of clinicians delivering a wide spectrum of rural health care across the island.  In addition to core general practice. there is a busy community hospital where we provide A&E, acute admissions, step-down rehabilitation and stabilisation & transfer of critically ill patients. The range of practice on the island offers a broad mix of learning opportunities.

You will be able to experience the satisfaction of working in a small community and learn about areas dispensing, working in remote branch surgeries and the generalist skills needed on an island.  This is an exciting time to join the wider team on Arran as we are progressing well with the integration of health and social care teams, and the development of more joined-up care.
