Covid-19: Hundreds of staff absent at Princess Alexandra Hospital
General / Mon 3rd Jan 2022 at 02:01pm
CORONAVIRUS was the reason behind an increasingly large number of NHS staff absences at the Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH) in Harlow on Boxing Day
NHS England data shows 323 members of staff at PAH off sick on December 26th (the latest date for which data is available).
Of them, 130 (40 per cent) were off because they had Covid-19, or were self-isolating due to the virus.
This was a 53 per cent increase on a week before, when 85 Covid-related absences were recorded.
YH will continue to monitor these figures.
We will be asking PAH how they will be managing with such absences.
This is meaningless unless they publish the total number of staff on their staff roll. In fact there are 3500 employed at PAH, so less than 10% are off sick .
