Fianna Fáil Deputy Robert Troy recently submitted a parliamentary question on staffing issues in the hospital and the fact that most of the consultants in the hospital were acting as locums.
In response, the hospital’s General Manager Mr Chris Kane stated that the Saolta University Health Care Group is in the process of recruiting consultant physicians for the hospital.
“There have been a number of permanent consultants who have transferred to other positions and one consultant has retired,” according to Mr Kane.
Currently, there are five consultant physicians in the hospital, of which one is permanent and one candidate has been selected from the initial advertisement campaign and is being processed for appointment in the coming months.
