No Geoff, the view was/is that of a full service "in house department" quite able to deal with all aspects of the tasks required no matter what. Are we really saying that one person could not hold the fort while the other was sick or on leave? I think they probably could.

To have four staff at a hospital of that size would be unnecessary. All you would have is four bored people.
