Figures for the number of people who attended north-east hospitals over the festive period have been released by a health board.
NHS Grampian reports the information on a weekly basis throughout the year and also includes the number of patients who failed to attend appointments.
The latest figures, which cover from December 17 2018 to January 6 this year, show 3,480 people attended the emergency department at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary (ARI) in Foresterhill Road.
There were 1,391 people who visited A&E at Dr Gray’s Hospital in Pluscarden Road, Elgin, and 744 patients attended A&E at Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital (RACH) in Westburn Road.
Across all three hospitals, more than 90% of patients who attended the emergency department were assessed and either admitted or discharged within the four-hour target.
