EWTD Verification Visits
This month, the IMO and representatives of HSE Acute Hospitals Management will make three site visits to verify compliance with the EWTD (European Working Time Directive). Those visits will take place on:
16th May – Mater Hospital
26th May – Beaumont Hospital
31st May – UH Limerick
While much work has been done in ensuring that NCHDs work safe and sensible hours, there is still work to do. It is important that pressure is maintained on local and national management to ensure that there is no back sliding on hard won agreements.
If you work in any of these hospitals and have concerns as to your working hours, you should contact the IMO. Better still, if you have concerns in this regard, you can attend one of these meetings and raise your concerns in person.
