ED nurses in Galway call for draft report to be made available to them

Emergency Department nurses in Galway University Hospital are calling for a draft report about their department to be made available to them.

The report on service delivery and patient safety was carried out by emergency and nursing specialists from Northern Ireland and England.

The study was undertaken following an Workplace Relations Commission agreement between INMO members and the hospital's management.

Industrial relations officer with the INMO in Galway Clare Treacy, says she believes a draft of the report has been made available to the hospital.

"We're in the middle of a national dispute, the key issue around that national dispute is the lack of confidence that nurses expressed with the local management.

"By sitting on the report and fobbing us off in terms of providing it to us, really just indicates the lack of confidence was a correct approach and a correct view that the nurses have taken."
