New Mullingar Hospital ED To Open After Staffing Concerns Addressed

Written 3 years ago by Newsroom

An agreement has been reached that will see the new emergency department at Mullingar Hospital open on November 7th.

The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation says the majority of members have accepted the proposals put forward by management.

Nurses had refused to move to the new €€5m unit until their concerns over staffing were addressed.

The INMO had recommended that they accept the proposals put forward following talks at the WRC.

Industrial relations officer Joe Hoolan says they had sought a number of reassurances.
