THERE are no plans to reopen the minor injuries unit or X-ray department at Seafield and Turner Memorial Hospitals in Buckie and Keith, it has been revealed.

The news comes following Moray Council’s recent corporate committee meeting during which Councillor Tim Eagle (Buckie, Conservative) asked for an update on the re-opening of these units in community hospitals in the region.

These units were closed during the initial phase of Covid and concerns are being raised that this is forcing more people onto A&E in Elgin and a significant cost for travel from outlying areas.
