Donegal HSE communications to be effected by strike action

Communications with HSE services in Donegal are likely to be affected today as a result of continued industrial action this week.

IMPACT has confirmed that telephones will not be answered in the HSE West area from 9am until 1pm today.

The union has agreed to grant a derogation for switchboards, and for direct line emergency services such as Emergency Departments. Meanwhile, calls related to a number of critical services will be screened on an hourly basis.
