OFFICIAL: Dundee medical practice no longer exists after council gives consent

Fintry Mill Medical Centre has now officially ceased to exist after an application to remove the building’s classification as a medical practice was approved by the council.

Practice owner Gordon Bain had submitted an application in October to have the restriction lifted, freeing the building up for other uses following its closure as a GP surgery.

Dundee City Council’s approval of the request means the former surgery can be used as premises for a variety of different businesses.

The building will now be “put on the market”, according to planning documents lodged with the council.

Fintry Mill closed on October 5 despite widespread dismay and calls from locals to reverse the decision.

Bosses at The Mill Practice, who continue to operate on Arthurstone Terrace, said they were forced to close in Fintry because of an inability to recruit permanent GPs.
