We are very grateful to the group of locum GP’s who continue to provide regular sessions in Brechin to help us provide as much continuity of care as possible until such time as we have recruited to all the available positions.
The Advanced Nurse Practitioners based within the Health Centre can deal with many of the problems you may at one time have seen a GP about. They are highly qualified nurses and can assess and examine patients, make a diagnosis, prescribe treatment and discharge. They work closely with other members of the practice team to provide you with the optimum care.
