Welcome to the website for the Hillswick Health Centre.
 The practice area covers the northernmost part of the Shetland Mainland, Northmavine, which is perhaps the most scenic area of Shetland.

The surgery provides medical care to roughly 750 people throughout Northmavine, including Ollaberry, North Roe, Sullom, Eshaness and Hillswick itself.
It is an established training practice for medical students. It is a dispensing practice with a fully-equipped small dispensary.

We are also Shetland's yellow fever centre. We charge £70 and can organise other travel vaccinations by arrangement

If you are a patient or a tourist, a medical student or simply interested in what happens at the surgery, please browse this site using the panel on the left to find out when we're open, how to contact the doctors and available facilities.

The principal GP in the practice is Dr Susan Bowie, who has worked at Hillswick since 1988, and in Shetland since 1984. We have also been joined by Associate GP, the very experienced Andy Muir. There is a full additional team including Practice Nurses Jeanette Spall, Rachel Smith and Jackie Manson, reception, secretarial, and dispensing staff Frances Williamson, Kelly Robertson, Julie Peterson and Amelia Dowle. Attached to our team we have the wonderful health promotion specialist, Nicola Balfour.
Health Visitor and District Nurses based at Brae provide district nursing cover. We have a midwife,Theresa, also attached to the surgery. We still have counselling from Lawrence Sutherland, thankfully, and at the moment we don't have a visiting psychiatrist.

For all enquiries and out of hour emergencies phone 01806 503 277
