Ireland In Breach Of Eu Directive On Doctor Working Hours

IRELAND IN BREACH OF EU DIRECTIVE ON DOCTOR WORKING HOURS

Ireland is in breach of an EU directive on working hours for Junior Doctors.

In a legal opinion published by the European Court of Justice, the Advocate General found that by excluding the training hours for non-consultant hospital doctors from “working time”, Ireland was in breach of the directive.

It’s not a final ruling but the opinion is likely to be upheld by the court.
