A north-east GP practice which temporarily closed will now not reopen.
The Methlick branch surgery of the Haddo Medical Group shut in December as staff were having to cover appointments across two sites.
Dr Fiona Munro, executive partner at Haddo Medical Group, said: “It has been a really difficult decision for everyone at the surgery, but in the circumstances, it is the right one.
“The closure has meant we have been able to consolidate our services at the main site, which means we are better able to continue offering a safe and secure service for all our patients.”
