These concerns were voiced by DACC away back when the unit was confirmed as going ahead. This unit it vital for the future development of the hospital & services to the community but our concerns were with budget cuts at LGH and the national recruitment embargo how would the hospital be able to manage this new unit? Really important that it happens and that staffing levels issues are addressed. Well done LGH!
It is not just the Nursing shortage that should concern people but also the shortage of NCHDs. The situation is going to get very serious not only in Letterkenny but Nationally. I offered a solution that would aid this but it is being ignored by the government.
Give the latest graduates jobs then!!
I sincerely hope this issue gets fixed, but i fear that the long term plan is to downgrade Letterkenny and send us all to sligo.
Where the heck are our politicians when we need them to represent our interests?
Sorry…..their talking about whether RTE shows a stupid football match. Give me a break.
perfect chance to employ newly qualified nursing staff and keep them at home.
“A meeting between nursing staff and hospital management is now due to take place on August 31st to review the situation”.
Is it just me that finds it absolutely ridiculus that a ward that is going to be opened in september will have a meeting on the last day of August to staff it??? They are going to have a meeting in 4 weeks time to address an issue that will arise a few days later.. I dont understand that???
