Several of our GPs have worked with Promote Shetland to develop short video clips detailing what it is like to live and work in Shetland and you can access the clips here:
Shetland is a wonderful place to live and work. Shetland offers low pollution, low crime, excellent schools, great leisure facilities, unique wildlife and amazing scenery, whilst still only a short flight away from the UK mainland. The Lerwick team say they have the best consulting room view in the UK – come and find out for yourself! To find out more about Shetland go to www.visitshetland.com
