SNS obstetricians throughout country request “excuse of responsibility”

Obstetricians and gynecologists working for the SNS health service in emergency units have requested excuse of responsibility while holiday rosters are as incomplete as they are (meaning while they lack required staff numbers). In a letter to health minister Marta Temido yesterday the doctors cited health service regulations, and stressed that no measures brought in by the government/ authorities so far have done anything to resolve “difficulties that are felt everyday in delivering health care” in their speciality.
