Welcome to the Website of Port Appin Medical Practice.

Link for Video Consultations

Contact by e mail - as we receive a lot of e mails from many sources this is not an appropriate way to initiate contact with the surgery, as there is a risk of your message being missed. Please phone first to arrange a consultation. 

FLU CLINICS -  we will be carrying out Flu Vaccinations in clinics in Port Appin Hall  and Lismore Hall in October. These will be strictly BY APPOINTMENT ONLY as we have to observe all the COVID spacing regulations. We will be phoning everyone on our lists to arrange appointments. If you think you are due a flu vaccine and have not heard from us by the second week in October please let us know. 

Emergency Measures  -  Covid19   

If you are normally healthy and have mild symptoms you should manage this yourself by observing strict self isolation and treating your symptoms as you would any viral illness.  You need to isolate for 10 days from the start of your symptoms and any people in your household have to isolate for 14 days.  You should book a test as soon as possible via the NHSInform websiteFull details and further advice are available on the NHSInform website.  Please do not phone the surgery or 111 unless your condition is deteriorating.

If your symptoms are deteriorating and you feel you need further assessment this will be carried out initially by phone at a new service run by NHS24.  Call 111 (at any time) to access this.

If the phone assessment determines that you need to be seen this will be arranged at the Assessment Centre at Oban Hospital.  Patients with symptoms suggestive of COVID19 will NOT be seen in the surgery.  We have no testing available here.

If someone is too ill to attend the Assessment Centre we will contact them to discuss assessment at home, initially by video link (which can be done using any computer or smartphone) or by home visit.  Obviously home visiting risks the visiting clinician becoming infected so this can only be done when totally necessary and when appropriate personal protective equipment is available.

New working practices during the pandemic

  • All consultations will be by phone in the first instance - if you wish an appointment call as early as you can in the day and the you will be given a time that the GP will return you call.  Perhaps your problem can be dealt with over the phone, if not a video call or face to face appointment will be arranged.  If you are asked to come to the surgery please do not bring anyone else in with you, do not arrive early, use hand sanitiser before entering and if you do not already have one, a mask will be provided at reception.
  • Please be aware that only one person can be in the building at a time. Be prepared to wait outside to facilitate this. 
  • Medication deliveries by volunteers are being done in all areas. 
  • Lismore - visits by the GPs have been suspended.  A scheme has been set up for the delivery of prescriptions to your home.

Repeat prescriptions

Please be patient.

  • Repeat medication can be requested in the normal ways. 
  • To minimise footfall in the surgery please make use of the volunteer delivery services if you can
  • If you are coming to collect medication please do so between 2 and 4pm if at all possible. 
  • When you come to collect your medication please be aware that only one person can be in the building at a time andbe prepared to wait outside to facilitate this. 
  • Medication deliveries by volunteers are being done in all areas. 

With the current issues being faced by the Practice, this is putting extra strain on our dispensary.  For this reason there may be slight delays in the making up of prescriptions.  


These can now be done using the Attend Anywhere - NearMe system.
