A Dundee GP practice has closed its doors to patients for the final time.
Fintry Mill Medical Centre shut for good at 6pm on Friday after efforts to recruit more GPs failed.
All services will be transferred to Arthurstone Medical Centre on Arthurstone Terrace.
A spokesman for Dundee Health and Social Care Partnership said: “All health boards across Scotland are facing a national shortage of GPs and NHS Tayside is no exception.
“Despite continuing efforts, Mill Practice in Dundee, which has premises at Arthurstone Medical Centre and Fintry Mill Medical Centre, has been unsuccessful in recruiting GPs to fill three practice vacancies.
“A public engagement exercise was led by Dundee Health and Social Care Partnership in conjunction with Fintry Mill Practice and a report was presented to the meeting of the Integration Joint Board held on August 28.
“In order for the practice to continue to provide the best service for all registered patients, the decision was taken by Mill Practice to permanently close its Fintry Mill branch on Friday October 5.
“All patients registered with Fintry Mill Practice have been notified of the closure date explaining that after this date patients will be seen at the Mill Practice.”
Fintry Community Council chairman Ron Neave said the situation was a “shambles”.
He added: “This is a devastating situation for the community.
“It is going to affect everyone in the community who goes to the practice, including the elderly, disabled and vulnerable.
“The practice had only recently taken on patients from the Stobswell Medical Practice which was also forced to close earlier this year.
“It’s a complete shambles. It means that people are now going to have to travel much further afield to see a doctor.”
