Opening hours at three north-east minor injury units are to change from Monday.
At the meeting of the Integration Joint Board in July, it was agreed hours would be amended for the units at Aboyne Hospital, Stonehaven’s Kincardine Community Hospital and Turriff Community Hospitals.
As a result of the changes, which come into force this Monday, the minor injury units (MIU) in Aboyne and Kincardine Community Hospitals will be open from 8am until 10pm seven days a week.
