& should we then be (somehow) breaking that number down into times of day &
specialities? There are 10 doctors at this facility - 4 work the morning
shift from 0600 till 1400, 4 from 1200 - 2000 (so 8 there from 1200 -
1400), but only 2 from 2000 - 0600 next morning - is the number you're
looking for 10 / 4 / 8 or 2?
It gets worse when you consider specialities - of those 10 doctors, 2 are
surgeons, 1 anaethesist, 1 obstetrician, 2 emergency room (none of whom are
usually available for general ward duty) & only 4 "normal" doctors. What
number do you want?
I'm sorry, Mhairi, but we've been asking these same questions ever since
this proposal was first put up, & nobody from your team has yet answered
It's a nice idea, but at this stage, I for one would have to be inclined to
vote no :-(
