Another blow for strained A&E staff

SO the understaffed, overstretched, target-hit emergency departments are to be scrutinised for human rights violations (News, June 3).

Can I suggest that, as a consequence, it will be even harder than it is currently to recruit any staff to these departments?

Part of the reason for the closure of emergency departments is that there is already a shortage of appropriately qualified medical staff and this is likely to further exacerbate the current situation.

It could be the final straw for some existing staff, who are already struggling to provide a quality service.
