Staff absenteeism – Prisons affected?

In Northern Ireland,  Wheatfield prison has been severely affected by staff absenteeism.

Services for inmates had been reduced in the past two years due to staff absenteeism and new staffing arrangements. While many educational and recreational services had been affected, the library took the brunt. Some 459 library sessions were run last year while 478 were cancelled due to staffing shortages.
