More than £115,800 was spent on 188 shifts from October 9 to October 11 across five health trusts.

Private agencies are charging health trusts in Northern Ireland up to £736 for a single nurse’s shift, it has been claimed.

And a shift in one trust area can cost £200 more than in another, the Assembly was told.
