Scottish Rural Medicine Collaborative

The Scottish Rural Medicine Collaborative (SRMC) is a programme funded by the Scottish Government to develop ways to improve the recruitment and retention of GPs working in rural Scotland. 

We work with ten Health Board areas in Scotland including Grampian, Highland, Orkney, Shetland, Western Isles, Dumfries & Galloway, Ayrshire & Arran, Fife, Tayside and Borders.  Also involved are the NHS Education for Scotland (NES), NHS HR Directors, the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) Scotland, the Scottish Rural Health Partnership (SRHP) and the Rural GP Association of Scotland (RGPAS).
