Health Minister Shona Robison will consider if more support can be given to NHS Grampian to help recruit GPs.
Ms Robison, pictured, met Aberdeenshire East MSP Gillian Martin and Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson, both SNP, to talk about recruitment difficulties in the North-east.
Ms Martin welcomed the reassurances.
She said: “We persistently face recruitment issues in both my constituency and Mr Stevenson’s.
“The Scottish Government has assured us they will assess the effectiveness of their new programmes and change their approach as needed.”
Mr Stevenson said he was pleased Ms Robison recognised the challenges.
He said: “The Cabinet Secretary has agreed to look at what more organisations like NHS Education for Scotland can do in the way of comprehensive training – at the same time seeing if more can be done to match GPs to the North-east.”
