A review of Minor Injury Units (MIUs) in Aberdeenshire, is moving into the final phase with a series of public consultation events, including one in Stonehaven.

This is part of an ongoing process, where feedback already received from the public, as well as the data on how many people use the services and at what times, has been examined.

At the Invercarron Resource Centre, on Thursday April 25 from 4-7pm, a range of future operating models will be shared and discussed. Residents can have input on what is being proposed for their minor injuries unit, which is currently located at Kincardine Community Hospital.

Following these, events a paper setting out the findings of the review and recommendations on the future operating models for 5 of the units in Aberdeenshire will be presented for final consideration by the Integrated Joint Board.

Rhona Atkinson, Chair of the IJB, said: “These events are a great opportunity for everyone who contributed to the first round of engagement events to see how important their input has been and to see what the unit in their area will look like in the future.”

Cllr Anne Stirling, Vice Chair of the IJB said: “I am delighted that the team behind the review are entering the final phase of the project and I am looking forward to seeing the recommendations which are presented to the IJB.”
