Being Here is a three-year programme of work being undertaken in four areas in
NHS Highland: Argyll & Bute: Kintyre, Islay and Mid-Argyll North Highland: West Lochaber & the Small Isles.
The programme, funded by the Scottish Government, is developing and testing new models for remote and rural health and care services in Scotland. It is progressing in the following areas:
- Recruitment and retention
- Training and education
- Community resilience
- Research and evaluation
The role of being a GP in a remote and rural area or island can be some of the most rewarding and inspiring work, with an incredibly varying workload each and every day, not to mention the stunning surrounding scenery!
