Looking after someone?


Caring for someone can be very difficult and many people find that they need extra help with the care they provide.


The Practice Manager is your link person and dedicated point of contact in Bourtreehill Medical Practice relating to accessing your GP services as a carer. If you have any particular issues relating to our services that are brought about by being a carer, and you want to tell us, please use the "Send Us Feedback" link in the left hand menu and mark it for the Manager's attention.


Our Local Carers' Partner Organisation is at the North Ayrshire Carers Centre (NACC)
