Tributes to Dr John Macleod OBE, GP Lochmaddy

The rural & remote health community was saddened in the last week to learn of the death of Dr John Macleod, long-serving GP of Lochmaddy (North Uist, Scotland) and one of the pioneers of rural practice.

Our thoughts are with Dr John’s family at this time.
