Residents have been urged to back calls for a north-east village to receive its own medical centre.
Belhelvie Community Council has issued a rallying call for people to take part in a survey asking them about their thoughts on a health centre in Balmedie.
Allan Hendry, a former Aberdeenshire councillor who sits on the community council, has urged people to take part.
He said: “At the rate the area is rapidly expanding I do think the majority of people would be in support of a health centre in Balmedie.
“This is why we want as many people as possible to fill out the survey so they can show people that there is desire.”
Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire Health and Social Care Partnerships are running the survey.
The “north corridor” study is looking to get a better understanding of the challenges faced by people looking to see a GP or nurse.
One of the questions is about being able to access primary care services such as a doctor, physiotherapist or community nurse in one space.
Adam Coldwells, chief officer of the Aberdeenshire Health and Social Care Partnership, said: “I am absolutely delighted by the enthusiasm and support that the North Corridor project is receiving from the affected communities in Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen City.
“I hope that many more residents will go online and fill in the survey, because the more responses we receive the better able we are to understand everyone’s priorities and concerns.
“We will develop plans to meet local health needs which will be informed by the feedback we get from our communities. ”
Public engagement events were held at the start of the month with project teams from the health and social care partnerships. The survey is on surveymonkey.co.uk/r/north_Corridor_Project
