Deirdre Galbraith

Since qualifying as a doctor 23 years ago, I have trained in a variety of posts finally settling in rural and remote medicine. I am currently working part time as a single handed GP in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

I am also part of a Topside team of clinicians who provide on-call cover for remote installations and assistance for international medical emergencies.

In between clinical postings over the last 20 years I have enjoyed working in the field as a ski patrol doctor and on expeditions to polar and high altitude environments. Now that I find myself with 2 children aged 4 and 6 my home environment is proving equally as challenging!
