The HSE has confirmed that a nurse will return to Tory Island over the coming week.
Concerns were raised over the level of medical care provision on the island yesterday as residents have been without a nurse since Thursday last as the nurse is currently on annual leave.
Islanders were without a nurse at Easter for a week also.
The residents of Tory Island are advised to contact their GP during surgery hours by phone and to contact NoWDOC out of hours for any medical concerns.
In a statement, the HSE says GPs, NoWDOC and the coastguard have been notified of this temporary arrangement.
