Elgin Community Surgery to end contract with NHS Grampian

The Elgin Community Surgery, which has a practice population of 4,703, will end its contract with NHS Grampian on the 1st July 2021.

Elgin Community Surgery Practice Partner, Dr Mark Houliston, said: “This has been a very difficult decision for the practice. Despite our best efforts to attract a new GP to the team, we have been unsuccessful. This has left us facing the reality that after July we will not have sufficient GP cover to ensure that we continue to offer the same high level of medical care. After coping with a challenging year I have no option but to hand back my contract. This is the last thing I would wish to do but I am left with no choice”

Claire Power, Primary Care Lead for Moray Health and Social Care Partnership, said: “We wish to thank Dr Houliston for the many years’ service to the Elgin Community patient population. Due to the particular circumstances, Elgin Community Surgery has taken the decision to hand their contract to provide Primary Care Services back to ourselves.

“We are working with Elgin Community Surgery and neighbouring practices to ensure continued sustainable, high-quality primary care services to patients.”

“I would also like to reassure patients that we, along with the practice, will keep them informed as soon as there is any new information and whilst it may be unsettling, I can assure them that we are doing all we can to make the process as smooth as possible.”

Practice staff have been informed of the situation and letters have been sent to all patients registered at the practice to inform them of the changes. Further updates will be provided as matters progress.
