Aberdeen Donside MSP Mark McDonald who discussed this issue with senior figures at NHS Grampian has welcomed the news.
Patients of the practice were notified today by letter.
Mark McDonald MSP said: “This is a great result for my constituents in Northfield and Mastrick, and I am glad we managed to move so quickly to resolve the challenges at the practice and get a new group in to run it.
“I know that initially there was a lot of worry in the community when changes for the medical practice were announced, so hopefully minds will be put at ease from the letters received by all patients with this good news.
“Good local health services are extremely important for the overall quality of life for a community and we cannot allow practices to close unnecessarily. I am glad to have had some input into discussions between our local NHS and health services and that the concerns of the community were taken into consideration.”
