Methilhaven Surgery now has three GP partners and 1 salaried GP, when previously there were five GPs. One in four practices in Scotland have a GP vacancy and the situation is unlikely to improve over the next few years. We would be grateful for your patience and understanding during this time, as we continue to provide the best service we can under extremely difficult conditions.
