Dr Neil Arnott

We are sad to inform you that Dr Arnott is leaving Tweeddale.

Dr Arnott is moving back to the east coast of Scotland to be nearer to his extended family and he starts a new job in Edinburgh in May.

Dr Arnott started working at Tweeddale in August 2000. During his time at Tweeddale he will have undertaken thousands of consultations and been present through many of the difficult points of local peoples' lives.

He helped the practice to achieve the RCGP Quality Practice Award twice. He was involved in the training of GPs and Medical Students and participated in research and leadership.

In 2004 he spent time undertaking voluntary work in Nepal and he became a Fellow of the Royal college of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in 2010 and the Royal college of General Practitioners in 2011.

While in Lochaber he was a member of Lochaber Athletics Club and ran the Ben Nevis race four times.

Dr Arnott's wife Morag is taking up a primary school teaching job in Fife. Dr Arnott has 2 daughters, Claire and Elise. Claire is in her final year at Aberdeen University and Elise is currently working in Cupar and has been undertaking voluntary work in a local primary school before deciding what to do next. Both girls attended Fort William primary school and Lochaber high.

We hope to see Dr Arnott back in Lochaber from time to time and he will no doubt be back hill running over the Aonachs, Mamores and Grey corries.

We wish him all the very best.

Our Location




General practice is the  cornerstone of the NHS - dealing with 90% of all patient contacts for just 8.39% of the NHS budget.

  • Waiting Times Are Soaring
  • Funding for General practice is Plummeting

The Put Patients First: Back General practice Campaign is demanding that the governments of the UK increase funding for general practice from the historic low 8.39% to 11% of the UK NHS budget by 2017. 

You can also get involved online and read more about the crisis facing general practice and the  campaign by visiting
