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 820 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 £80 for Yellow Fever vaccination.
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 also have Associate GPs, the very experienced Mandy Pegman, and Ben Herring who have joined us. Dr Andy Muir also does occasional locums here. There is a full additional team including Practice Nurses Jeanette Spall and Jackie Manson, reception, secretarial, and dispensing staff Julie Peterson, Frances Williamson, Carol Sandison and Kelly Robertson. Attached to our team we have the wonderful health promotion specialist, Astryd Jamieson.
Health Visitor and District Nurses based at Brae provide district nursing cover. We have a midwife, Tanya Sandison also attached to the surgery. We have counselling from Lerwick mental health department
