THE Rose City's doctor shortage has been given some relief, with the Warwick Medical Centre to be in the hands of new owners by this time next week.

One of just two private medical practices in town, the centre is expected to remain open on a full-time basis following the sale.

Current owner Dr Chris Hannon now lives in Brisbane and will work Mondays and Tuesdays, but co-owner Barbara Hannon said it was unclear at this stage as to how long Dr Hannon would stay at the Warwick centre, which it was feared would close at the end of May.

A new locum doctor will start on Monday and the other two doctors will stay on.

Mrs Hannon said she was grateful to the centre's clients for their support over the years.

"I would like to say thanks to all of the patients. It has been wonderful working with them and I will miss them," Mrs Hannon said. "It has been a pleasure serving the Warwick community and we wish the new owners all the best."

Mrs Hannon declined to confirm the identity of the new owners but said they were set to take over next Tuesday.
