The doctor lined up to become Sark's new GP has withdrawn their application.

Chief Pleas says negotiations with Doctor Mckelvie have failed.

It comes after Sark's former doctor, John Stevenson became ill nine months ago.

Doctor Victoria Gray will continue to give medical cover whilst the committee looks for a new GP.

Despite extensive efforts, contractual negotiations with Doctor Mckelvie have failed and he has withdrawn his acceptance from the position as Sark GP.
