Our Practice


We are a small, friendly practice consisting of two Partners - Dr Dunnett & Dr Gurling. We consult between the Health Centre at Creebridge, and the Surgeries at both Wigtown and Kirkcowan. We dispense medicines from our Kirkcowan branch. 

We share the Health Centre with Health Board colleagues, speech therapy, physiotherapy, podiatry and some consultants hold out-patient clinics.  We hold a General Medical Services (GMS) contract with Dumfries & Galloway Health Board.
