Levenwick Medical Practice to become an NHS Shetland salaried practice as of Sunday 1st October 2023

From Sunday 1st October 2023 Levenwick Medical Practice will become managed by NHS Shetland rather than operating as an independent practice. This is in response to a request from Dr Esther Mitchell, principal GP, who has asked to pass the contract back to the Board. Levenwick will become the ninth salaried practice in Shetland. 

Whilst there is some work to be done behind the scenes to ensure arrangements are in place for a smooth transfer, Levenwick patients should be assured that the practice will be there for them as usual, with little to no disruption to usual working arrangements. All pre-arranged appointments are expected to go ahead as planned with the same clinical team in place.
