Hexham General Hospital’s urgent care centre is to remain closed overnight for what has been described as an "indeterminate period".
It has been shut between 10pm and 8am since July 18. This was for an initial four weeks but has not been extended.
Marion Dickson, chief operating officer for surgery, clinical support and child health, said:
A trust spokeswoman added that it is working with Northumberland Clinical Commissioning Group to discuss long-term arrangements for the overnight service at the urgent care centre and will report back to residents as soon as there is further news.
Anyone needing urgent care overnight can call NHS 111 or – in an emergency – 999.
