In the coming days, junior doctors will rotate to their new postings as part of the twice yearly changeover in the system that trains up our interns and future consultants. These are the junior doctors that have chosen to stay and practice in this country – at least for now. The exodus of vast numbers of our young doctors has led some to suggest that medical students who train here – at a huge cost to the taxpayer – should be obliged to work here when they qualify.

As you will have been hearing on news reports this morning, hundreds of junior doctors today are staging a work stoppage in protest at their excessive working hours.It is estimated that around 15,000 patients will be affected by the 24-hour industrial action. Sean was joined on the line now from the picket line outside Tallaght Hospital by Dr John Donnellan who is Chair of the Non Consultant Hospital Doctors Committee.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2013/1008/479046-today-with-sean-o-rourke-tuesday-8-october-2013/?clipid=1327663
A decision is expected later today on the form of industrial action that the country’s so-called ‘junior doctors’ plan to take at the end of the month in protest at their working hours. While the Irish Medical Organisation has said emergency services will not be affected, the possibility of up to 4,900 doctors withdrawing from other duties could cause serious disruption to patient care.
