Service Update Jan 2019
Argyllshire Advertiser 5th October 2018
Lochgilphead Medical Practice is facing unprecedented problems wth a shortage of GPs. Circumstances have left the practice so short staffed that services have had to be trimmed back as a temporary measure.
New systems involve change, but we can't forget that we are pretty well served with our doctors in this part of the country. In many urban parts, patients are lucky to see a doctor within a week.
