Hi All, We moved out of Aberdeen and moved to England 2 years back. Now my company is offering full time remote working from home. I am evaluating if I should move back to Aberdeen. Reasons for considering moving back: Medical & NHS services are better in Aberdeen/Scotland compared to our own experience in England. We are having a lot of issues even getting an appointment with the GP. Initially we thought it was due to the Covid situation. However, based on the feedback we received from other local people in Nextdoor(app) it seems it is always like this even before the Covid situation. We are trying for last 1 year and we are not able to even register with a Dentist for any dental care. Buying a house in England is out of our reach as prices are crazy. Whereas, in Aberdeen we could find a good & bigger house for a reasonable price. If we cant buy a house in England, we will end up as tenants/renters all our life. Moving to Aberdeen would allow my wife to quite her job( or go part time) and take care of the kids and we can still have reasonable life style in Aberdeen on one salary. Questions: Is the situation in Aberdeen getting worse? Is the downturn in Aberdeen slowing down? Any Impact of Scotland becoming Independent in the future? Will this be good for Aberdeen or Bad for Aberdeen? Is there any hopes for Aberdeen to survive and bounce back? or We are in our Mid 40's and don't plan to change jobs. So we are not too much worried of the job market in Aberdeen. However, we are worried if the situation get bad and people start moving out of Aberdeen and it becomes or ghost town? Cheers
