Statement from Cromarty Practice Partners 2017
Cromarty Practice has for several years had difficulty in recruiting medical staff. We have tried to link up with neighbouring Practices with regard to working together in a larger grouping, but unfortunately this was not possible at the time, and so was unsuccessful. This means that it has been impossible for any of the current clinical staff to move on to new jobs or retire, as the Practice has been unable to replace them.
Therefore as the current model of care is no longer sustainable, the only alternative left to us is to hand the Practice over to NHS Highland and allow them to seek a solution regarding the forward planning of Cromarty Surgery.
The date the existing Partnership ceases is on the 30th June 2017.
General Practice patient care will continue for Cromarty patients, and NHS Highland will be in touch with you in due course regarding ongoing arrangements. If you have any queries please direct them to either Stewart MacPherson, Clinical Director (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ros Philip, Primary Care manager (email@example.com) at Highland Health Board.
