Out of Hours

There is a GP available for urgent calls 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

If the practice is closed, then when you call you will either get an answering machine message telling you how to contact the on-call doctor or the call will go straight through to NHS24.

NHS24 Highland Hub can contact the on-call doctor for you.

Weeknight cover is provided by:

  • Dr Robbie Coull, Strachur
  • Dr Jurgen Tittmar, Strachur
  • Dr Alida Pettie, Tighnabruaich
  • Dr Peter Von Kaehne, Lochgoilhead
  • Dr Annette McCulloch, Lochgoilhead
and two Rural Practitioners that work for Highland Health Board who provide cover on Monday nights.

Weekend cover is currently provided by:

  • Dr Ash Bhopal, Strachur
  • Dr Fiona Mauritzen, Tighnabruaich

So there is always a GP available in the Strachur / Tighnabruaich / Lochgoilhead area that you can speak to or see if you need to over the weekend.  The GP can meet you at the Strachur Out of Hours Center or can provide a home visit if you need one.

Out of Hours GP cover for Cowal is currently under review by Highland Health Board's 24/7 Committee.
