Current Out of Hours Doctor Availability

Some patients have expressed concern about what to do out of hours if they need to see the doctor urgently.

There is always a doctor availble for Strachur and Tighnabruaich, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Weeknight cover is provided by:
  • Dr Robbie Coull, Strachur
  • Dr Jurgen Tittmar
  • 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.
