The Southern Trust has come under fire after it was revealed that domiciliary staff have gone underpaid. After staff across the Southern Trust area contacted Clanrye News and Sport we contacted the Trust for a response.
A spokesperson for the Southern Trust said:
“The Southern Trust is aware of a regional payroll issue affecting a number of our staff in the Newry and Mourne Area.
The staff involved have been contacted and we are working to process the payments as quickly as possible.”
Clanrye News and Sport can state that there is absolutely no excuse for under paying staff and in particular NHS staff during the Covid pandemic. These amazing people have been under significant pressure and stress due to staff shortages, under funding and bad management. To not pay them properly is nothing short of disgusting in these writers eyes.
