A&E waiting times to be cut, says Poots22nd March 2012
Northern Ireland health minister Edward Poots has said he wants to see 95% of patients in A&E departments admitted or discharged within four hours.
Under new proposals he has unveiled to ease waiting times, he will also permit senior nurses to discharge patients at weekends and on public holidays and allow more people to be let home before lunchtime. Mr Poots announced his plans, which include setting up an action group to look into the situation, to more than 100 nurses and midwives at the Ward Sister Conference.
