Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

A PLANNED new tem­po­rary GP surgery for the Carse of Gowrie has been broadly wel­comed by politi­cians and health part­ners.

It has been re­vealed the Carse Med­i­cal Prac­tice has sub­mit­ted an ap­pli­ca­tion for the new surgery, which, if given the green light by Perth and Kin­ross Coun­cil, will be built to the east of Er­rol. The prac­tice group, along with NHS Tay­side and the Perth and Kin­ross Health and So­cial Care Part­ner­ship, i ntends to make ar­range­ments for a per­ma­nent struc­ture to be built in a three to five-year time frame.

An­gus Forbes, Scot­tish Con­ser­va­tive coun­cil­lor for the Carse of Gowrie ward, said he was “de­lighted”.

Mr Forbes and his Carse of Gowrie col­league, Labour coun­cil­lor Alas­dair Bai­ley, hope the in­terim surgery build­ing will ease con­cerns about the fu­ture of lo­cal med­i­cal ser­vices.

Mr Bai­ley said: “I am re­lieved to hear that the Carse Med­i­cal Prac­tice is able to con­tinue to serve pa­tients here — al­beit from a tem­po­rary build­ing.”
