The Fyvie Oldmeldrum Medical Group, which has 8974 patients, will end its contract with NHS Grampian on 17 April 2023.

Alex Pirrie, Interim Partnership Manager for Central Aberdeenshire, said: “The Fyvie Oldmeldrum Medical Group has unfortunately, like many others across the country, found itself in the position of being unable to recruit to GP vacancies and as a result the Partners have made the difficult decision to hand back their contract to us.

“The Aberdeenshire Health and Social Care Partnership along with the Practice and others, are working together to ensure that patients experience little to no disruption. I appreciate that this is an uncertain time for those registered with the Practice and we will continue to operate the practice as usual over the coming months”

A spokesperson for the Fyvie Oldmeldrum Medical Group Partners, said: “It is with a deep sense of sadness that we have had to take this very difficult decision. I would also like to reassure patients that we will work with the Partnership to ensure a smooth hand over of the practice.”

There will be no change to the way that patients access their practice and people do not need to take any action. We will continue to update the community as we progress.
