With Doctors Jim and Liz Bryson on the brink of retirement from Cumbrae Medical practice amidst a continuing row about the future of their dispensary two NHS committees are to quiz residents.

ISLAND doctors have appealed to residents to take part in the NHS consultations over the future provision of medical services on Cumbrae.

In a letter to the Largs & Millport Weekly News Dr Jim Bryson of the current medical practice has warned that provision will change when he and his wife, Liz, also a GP, retire.

The couple have asked Ayrshire and Arran NHS to carry out an assessment of the needs of Millport and two consultation groups will start work in January.

    Can I please ask everyone in Millport to attend the Public Meetings and get their views heard - no matter what they are.

    Everything is under review - paramedics instead of Doctors on at night, the hospital's function, the make up of the whole Medical Services here on Cumbrae.

    Unless we speak out and demand a decent service, we will get what we are given - and they may not be what we want - or need.
