A Mearns surgery was forced to close on Monday morning due to flooding damage following a downpour.
Stonehaven Medical Group was briefly unable to see patients after staff returned to the building to find it had been badly affected by persistent rainfall across the weekend.
The building was made safe by the afternoon, however locals have been warned to expect “ongoing disruption”.
Patients are once again being seen to in consulting rooms at the Robert Street centre.
Early on Monday morning NHS Grampian tweeted: “There has been flooding over the weekend at the surgery. They are currently awaiting assessment to the extent of the damage and cannot currently see patients.”
Later in the day the health board updated to say: “The surgery phone lines are open again and it has been made safe to see patients in most of the consulting rooms.
“There may be some ongoing disruption to usual services but they are working hard to try and ensure they can provide as full a service as normal.”
