When We Are Closed
If you require urgent medical advice outside normal surgery hours please telephone 111 to speak with NHS 24. If appropriate the nurse will arrange a consultation on your behalf and you may be asked to attend your nearest treatment centre (usually Aboyne Hospital) or, if necessary you will be visited at home.
Minor Injuries Department
The Minor Injury Department is a 24-hour service and is staffed by trained nurses at Aboyne Hospital. It is to be used for minor injuries only. The nurse may deal personally with your injury or ask the doctor to come and see you. Please report to reception at Aboyne Hospital.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
