The closure of Turriff Community Hospital is only a temporary measure, officials have confirmed.

Aberdeenshire Health And Social Care Partnership have confirmed that Turriff Community Hospital is currently closed to admissions, a state which is being reviewed regularly.

This move allows the current Turriff Hospital staff team to be redeployed within Aberdeenshire to areas where they are more urgently needed.

As news of the hospital's closure spread throughout the town this weekend many expressed their concerns that this was permanent however the team at Aberdeenshire Health And Social Care Partnership have reassured the Turriff Advertiser that the closure is definitely not permanent.

Partnership manager for Central Aberdeenshire Geraldine Fraser said: “As a temporary measure to help us support vital services in the short term, Turriff Community Hospital has been closed to admissions.

"Staff from the hospital have been asked to temporarily deploy to other priority areas including the roll-out of the mass vaccination campaign, in order that we can continue to deliver vital community health and social care services.”
