NHS contingency plans for staff

24th June 2009

West Midlands NHS has put in place contingency plans in anticipation of staff being absent from work with swine flu.

The region accounts for more than half of all swine flu cases in England, with 1,154 cases being reported. While the authority recognises that absenteeism would put the service under pressure, plans were in place to tackle that, it said. Meanwhile, Heartlands Hospital in Birmingham and Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield have set up triage areas to cope with complaints of symptoms.
