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 700 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.
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.
