Surgery unit is opened.
The pounds 650,000 unit, self-contained within Alnwick Infirmary, has room for 14 patients and was built to cut waiting times and avoid the need for day surgery patients to take up beds in general wards.
Minor operations and investigative surgery will be carried out and new staff have been recruited to run the unit, paid for by the NHS Modernisation Agency.
