A BURST water pipe has affected services at Bixter Health Centre.
NHS Shetland said the burst pipe affected the clinical rooms and has resulted in appointments being rearranged for this week.
Patients may be asked to go to Walls, where some of the Bixter staff will be working.
“If your appointment is affected, we will phone you,” an NHS Shetland spokesperson said.
“Prescriptions can still be collected from Bixter and we will update the public through the week. We would like to thank members of the public for their cooperation whilst we deal with this situation.
“NHS Shetland would also like to thank those members of the public who let us know there was a problem, and thanks all staff who have worked over the weekend to deal with the burst pipe.”
