Junior doctors needed in NI24th April 2008
The British Medical Association’s Junior Doctors Committee has written to the chief executives of Northern Ireland’s five trusts to urge them to address a serious shortage of junior doctors.
The BMA says the shortage is impacting on the quality of patient care with junior doctors often required to fill gaps in ward rotas, sometimes single-handedly. The letter also reminds trusts that the August 2009 deadline for implementation of the European Working Time Directive, reducing the working week from 56 to 48 hours, is fast approaching.
