Arran Hospitals, Dentists, Doctors, Arran Healthcare


Arran has the following Health and Social Care Facilities:

1 Hospital including Physiotherapists, Radiography and Outpatients

  • 1 GP Practice – Arran Medical Group with 3 main sites (Brodick, Lamlash, Shiskine) and 2 branch surgeries (Lochranza & Whiting Bay)
  • Community Nursing team including Mental Health, School nursing and Health visiting Montrose House (NAC Residential Care Home) 
  • Care at Home & Alert team
  • Social Services Team and Occupational Therapy team

Plans are progressing to update the facilities by the creation of a new Hub. The aim is a genuine transformation with patient centred care delivered by a single, truly integrated team. This encompasses a wide range of services and staff groups.  It includes all primary care, community hospital, community health and social care teams, social work, residential care and administration teams.  These services will be accessed through a single point of contact.

Building a Health and Social Care Hub on Arran has been identified as key to the longer term success of achieving team integration and the efficiencies necessary to support such transformational change.
