Working with Furnace and Inveraray surgery

The team running Strachur Medical Practice have been awarded the contract to run our neighbour practice, the Furnace and Inveraray Medical Practice.

This will allow the two practices to work closely together when providing care.  This will be a huge advantage in these difficult times when many small practices are losing their GPs, and will help secure the future of both practices.

The two practices working together will be called the Three Lochs Medical strategic alliance.

You can read more about this on the Three Lochs Medical website.

New BASICS vehicle

The practice has purchased a new BASICS vehicle to respond to emergencies in.

This is part of our Immediate Care service.  Doctors and Nurses from the practice respond to 999 calls in the practice area as volunteers.

See our Immediate Care page for more details.

Our Woman's Health Clinic can now do Pessaries!

We have just had news that funding for providing vaginal pessaries in our Women's Health Clinic changes has been approved.

This means that we will now be able to insert / remove / change vaginal pessaries for patients.
Our Women’s Health Clinic is open to all women living in Argyll and Bute- you don't need to be a patient at the practice.  It runs around once a month - call the practice on 01369 860 224 for the times of our next clinics and to book an appointment.
We provide contraceptive implants, coils, and pessaries for any patient in Argyll and Bute, as well as menopause advice for patients registered at the practice.. 

Pessaries are used to treat conditions such as prolapse and urinary incontinence which can cause a huge amount of hidden suffering for women.  Women with pessaries need them checked or changed regularly.   Since the covid19 crisis there have been very long waiting times for pessary changes in hospital clinics, which has caused a lot of issues for patients.
