Senior Medical Scientist of Letterkenny University Hospital Kathleen King spoke to Highland Radio today in relation to the industrial action taking place.

2. 20% of State sanctioned job have been left unfilled.
It was also ensured that opposed to what was expressed in the media, the laboratories were not left empty with pre-planned emergency cover throughout the day.
