After a long history of providing medical services to the village, the practice is now amalgamated with the Aboyne Medical Practice.
It is now national policy to see these small practices disappear, and this has resulted in the absorption of Tomintoul, Rothes and Gardenstown into neighbouring practices, and now Tarland also. Although we are by nature traditionalists, and don't like change, the truth is that this change is for the better.
The Aboyne Medical Practice have agreed to use the Tarland premises as a branch surgery, and so to provide a service locally. Their web address is www.aboynemedicalpractice.co.uk
I wish them every success in their new extended role.
