Doors open on new small isles health and wellbeing centre

RESIDENTS of the small isles of Eigg, Muck, Rum and Canna have a new health centre.

A team from NHS Highland has been working on the conversion of the former doctor’s house on Eigg to a health and wellbeing centre.

Eigg’s newest resident, three-weekold Bryn Lovatt, officially opened the centre during a special community health fair on the island.

Director of operations for NHS Highland’s north and west unit, Gill McVicar, said: ‘The resident GP on Eigg died three years ago and we needed to review the model of care for the people of Eigg, Muck, Rum and Canna. It provided us with an opportunity to do something different. We identified and trained four health and social care support workers based in the local communities to deliver health care in the small isles.’
