Dr Murray & Dr Naylor

NEW BBC ALBA DOCUMENTARY SHEDS LIGHT ON THE WORK OF A REMOTE ISLAND PRACTICE

In his smart suit and shining shoes he cuts a striking image against the Hebridean moors and mountains. Medical bag in hand, negotiating the rough path of a croft, it could be a scene lifted straight out of Dr Finlay’s Casebook. But Dr Andrew Naylor is as real a part of the Isle of Harris landscape as the crofters, fishermen and families who live there.

In an age of NHS-24 with practice mergers and centralised care, Scotland’s solo medical practitioners, working round the clock are becoming a thing of the past.

However, this is not the case for Dr Andrew Naylor of the Leverburgh Surgery on the Isle of Harris. A new BBC ALBA documentary ‘Slàinte na Sgìre : An Island Practice’, reveals a place of storybook charm where practices are very different from mainland surgeries.

With a patient roll of just over 500, Leverburgh Surgery, tucked between South Harris hills and the sea, is among Scotland’s smallest practices. It’s a 24-7 job for gentle mannered physician, Dr Andrew Naylor, a traditionalist and man of faith, and his gregarious doctor- crofter colleague, Dr Donald John Murray from Ness in the Isle of Lewis, who visits each month to support the surgery.

60 miles from the Western Isles Hospital, the doctor on duty is the first port of call in any medical emergency. Having opted out of NHS 24, it’s a round the clock commitment for Drs Naylor and Murray.

Dr Naylor said: “We are probably different but hopefully we complement each other though.

“In a group practice you can perhaps knock off at 5pm and someone else is responsible that night or there are colleagues to discuss it with the next day. In a single handed practice you are it.”

Dr Murray has two trusted four legged companions, collies Nell and Moy, who always accompany him on his travels. In his spare time Dr Murray tries to train Moy to become a sheepdog. “I’m supposed to be training her to be a sheepdog, not a dancer. Little Moy just loves Led Zeppelin.”

No two days are the same and an island doctor’s day goes far beyond the surgery walls. Humorous, touching and reminiscent of an era long gone in many places, ‘Slàinte na Sgìre : An Island Practice’ offers a light-hearted glimpse of island life following the unique and contrasting styles of the two medical men over a working season.

Trusadh – Slàinte na Sgìre : An Island Practice’ has been produced for BBC ALBA by MacTV and will be broadcast on Monday 27 January at 9pm.

Na dheise ghrinn agus brògan gleansach agus le a bhaga meidigeach na làimh is e a’ gabhail suas staran croit, ‘s ann a tha an dealbh a’ samhlachadh sealladh a-mach à Dr Finlay’s Casebook. Seo an Dr Andrew Naylor, aon de na dotairean mu dheireadh ann an Alba a tha ag obair nan aonar, agus tha e a cheart cho aithnichte anns na Hearadh ’s a tha nan croitearan, iasgairean agus teaghlaichean na sgìre.

Le beagan is 500 euslainteach clàraichte aca, ’s e Ionad-dhotair an t-Òib aon de na h-ionadan-dotair as lugha ann an Alba. Ach ‘s e obair gun sgur a th’ ann dhan dotair stòlda seo, cuide ri a cho-obraiche beothail, an Dr Dòmhnall Iain Moireach a tha a’ roinn ùine eadar croitearachd agus dotaireachd, agus a bhios ag obair sna Hearadh uair sa mhìos.

“Tha mi creidsinn gu bheil sinn eadar-dhealaichte”, tha an Dr Naylor ag ràdh, is e fhèin gu mòr an lùib obair na h-eaglaise na ùine shaor. “Ach tha min dòchas gu bheil an dòigh ’s a bheil sinn ag obair còmhla na bhuannachd!”

Le seasgad mìle eadar an sgìre agus an ospadal as fhaisge, ‘s e an dotair a’ chiad neach a tha a’ dèiligeadh le èiginn mheidigeach sam bith a nochdas. ‘S às dèidh co-dhùnadh NHS 24 fhàgail, feumaidh iad a bhith deiseal son obair gach uair den là ’s den oidhch’.

“Le buidheann de dhotairean faodaidh tu stad aig 5f agus tha cuideigin eile a’ gabhail an uallaich airson na h-oidhche, no tha luchd-obrach ann leis am faod thu bruidhinn mu chùisean an ath là” thuirt Dr Naylor. “ Ach leis an t-suidheachadh ann an seo tha thu dìreach leat fhèin.”

Tha na coin chaorach aig an Dr Moireach, Nell agus Moy, an-còmhnaidh còmhla ris. “Tha Moy cho excited nuair a bhios an ceòl air. ’S caomh leatha Led Zeppelin! Ach feumaidh mi an aire a ghabhail. Tha cù airson caoraich – chan ann airson danns!”

Bheir Slàinte na Sgìre gàire ort, agus dùsgaidh e cuimhneachain bho linn eile is sinn a’ cur seachad mìos no dhà leis an dithis eadar-dhealaichte seo, ’s iad ag obair gu dìcheallach aig cridhe coimhearsnachd a tha iomallach is inntinneach. Chì sinn Dotair air a leòn agus taisbeanadh chon, ionad-dotair beag agus srùbag, seirbheis eaglaise sònraichte agus cuilean a tha gu math dèidheil air ceòl rock ’n roll : tha obair dotair nan eilean gu mòr a-muigh ’s am measg na coimhearsnachd.

Thèid Trusadh – Slàinte na Sgìre a shealltainn air Diluain 27 Faoilleach aig 9f, agus a-rithist air Dimàirt 28 Faoilleach aig 10f.
