Alnwick Medical Group (AMG) is currently on a recruitment drive to attract more GPs to Alnwick.
Tony Brown, practice manager, said: “A succession of retirements has meant a shortage in Alnwick over the last few years and led to a paired down service at both Embleton and Longhoughton Surgery.
“For the last three years we have studied our demand across our whole patch and altered where we hold GP clinics.
“We are hoping that our current recruitment campaign will allow us to review our provision and towards the end of this year or the start of next we would aspire to re-introduce a limited GP presence in both branch surgeries.
“Rumours are always flying around that the branches are to close but this is not in AMG’s strategy and with new housing developments we would like to review what we currently provide, and then look to expand on these services over time.”
