GP service retained at Barr and Dailly

General medical services in Dailly and Barr are set to continue following the collaborative working of GP practices in Dailly and Girvan.

Two family doctors (GPs) will provide general medical and repeat pharmacy prescription and dispensing services from premises in Dailly and from premises in Barr. Practice staff at both premises will also be retained. NHS Ayrshire & Arran and East Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership (which is responsible for primary care services in Ayrshire) have been working intensively to provide a solution to the imminent retiral of the existing GP in Dailly.

Eddie Fraser, Director of East Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership, said: “We are delighted that, with a positive approach and hard work, all parties have agreed on the best possible solution for our patients in Dailly and Barr. We recognise that local services are valued by patients and we have managed to deliver the best outcome for them.”
