Northport Studio, based in Elgin, have created a series of promotional films which put Moray at "their very heart" to attract professionals to the area.

Recruitment into key positions at Dr Gray's Hospital will be vital in supporting the restoration of a consultant-led maternity service, targeted for 2026.

Alasdair Pattinson, hospital general manager, said: "This will allow us to connect with potential candidates in a unique and engaging way, showcasing the opportunities and advancements within our hospital ensuring a bright and vibrant future for the hospital and services for the population of Moray.

“The promotional films put the Moray area at their very heart.

"Moray is an undiscovered gem and making people aware of the magnificent quality of life we can offer here is our best chance of attracting the people we need to work in our health and social care system."

NHS Grampian says that the release of the videos precedes the launch of a full recruitment campaign with further details to be revealed in the coming days.

The health board also expressed gratitude towards campaign group Keep MUM after they connected NHS Grampian with Northport Studio.

Mr Pattinson added: "As we anticipate the official campaign launch this week, NHS Grampian remains committed to enhancing the healthcare services at Dr Gray’s Hospital and welcoming new members to our team.

"Our ultimate goal is to provide full consultant-led maternity services at the hospital in 2026 and I hope the level of investment in these promotional films and the recruitment campaign demonstrate how committed we are to that."
