Are any Locums being used to cover the absence of Consultants through suspension?
How many Locums on a full time basis have been used to cover suspensions for each of the last twelve months?
Fewer than five Health and Community Services medical staff are excluded from clinical work. Any absence is covered on a like-for-like basis.
As numbers are small, disclosure control has been applied to protect the privacy of individuals and no further breakdown of clinician designation or Locum staff numbers used to cover can be provided. Article 25 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied.
