NI surgery warning

30th January 2009

Senior surgeons say that some surgical services in Northern Ireland will be affected by the European Working Time Directive when it is imposed in August 2009. 

Consultant surgeon John Moorehead said small hospitals including Daisy Hill, Whiteabbey and the Causeway would suffer the most: "Those hospitals will struggle to provide a surgical service and there is a distinct possibility that with the passage of time, surgical services may have to be withdrawn."
