A planned lunchtime protest by nurses over staffing levels and working conditions outside of Sligo University Hospital (SUH) has been stood down.

The INMO had planned to highlight the challenges experienced by members working in SUH on a day-to-day basis.

Concerns had been raised at the level of staff in the hospital.

The INMO confirmed last night that the protest has been stood down for the moment due to further engagement and negotiation with the hospital management and the HSE.

Local councillor Thomas Walsh welcomed the development.

“I welcome this morning’s announcement following talks last night between HSE management, SAOLTA and the INMO. Management have now agreed to an assessment of staffing requirements which will be undertaken by a clinical lead in emergency nursing.
“There will also be an emergency WRC meeting in the coming days for further engagement between hospital management and the INMO.
I welcome this positive engagement and look forward to the staffing assessment taking place in the near future.”
