Therefore we recommend you do not travel to the island if you are feeling unwell with symptoms which may indicate a serious condition e.g. chest pain. Please have any potential problems checked out at either the hospital in Lerwick or one of the health centres on the larger islands, such as Yell or Unst, before travelling to Fetlar.
If you have a need for any sort of medication, please do make sure that you have taken sufficient supplies with you to last your stay. The nurse only has supplies to deal with emergency situations.
Also if you are potentially likely to need any medication - perhaps for insect bites - please also take supplies with you.
The health centres on the larger islands do have dispensaries. However, you will need to register as a temporary resident and see a doctor in order for medicines to be prescribed and dispensed.
