A QUARTER of doctor shifts are unfilled in the out-of-hours centres in the Western Trust area, which is also facing the added pressure of seasonal colds and flu epidemics.
In a statement, Western Urgent Care which delivers the out-of-hours service said they were “experiencing significant staffing pressures”. The service was fielding a staggering 200 telephone calls per hour on Boxing Day.
“Currently, 25 per-cent of our shifts remain unfilled every week, this puts significant extra pressure on our clinical as well as non-clinical staff which may result in delays in getting back to you or seeing you either in base or at home.
