We are a branch surgery of the Orcades Practice, which looks after people living on the larger islands of Orkney.

We provide general practice, community nursing and emergency care for all residents, and for our numerous summer visitors.

Most of the information you need should be somewhere on these pages - if not please tell us what you'd like to see using the webmaster email link below

Nursing 2

20 Dec 17: Sally Harvey was appointed after the recent interviews to be our new resident nurse. She is a widely experienced practice nurse. We hope that she will be taking up her post in February.

Old News

24/7 Nursing no longer

20 Nov 17: Unfortunately, since Alison's injury in May, we have had to revert to the previous sytem. No more 24 hour nursing service. Roz is working during working hours and there is no nursing service in the evenings, overnight or at weekends. However, Alison was back to work part-time from 1 Oct and normal service should be resumed in November.


11 Nov 17: Both doctor & nurse will be away for a the best part of a month from 9 October. Dr Buckland will be here again and nursing will be covered for some days by Linda Boyd from Flotta.

Telephone Trouble

21 Oct 17: The main 701209 number stopped working on Thursday 19 October. You can contact the surgery on 701224 (though that may take some time to be answered as the telephone is in the doctor's office and the receptionists can't get to it during surgery hours). More reliably you can email Teresa on teresa.bird2@nhs.net or call in.

In emergencies call 888000 and ask the Balfour switchboard to bleep the Hoy doctor.

BT were informed of the problem promptly....
