Teare explains reduction in services

Health Minister Eddie Teare (pictured) says the temporary reduction of services at Ramsey Cottage Hospital should be seen in context.

The DHSS says there will be a reduction in the opening hours at the minor injuries unit for the next four weeks, due to staffing shortages.

It means the unit currently closes at 8pm rather than 10 pm, but Mr Teare says there's an unusual set of circumstances involving the practitioner nurses.
