Well if Leo says it must be true then
Of course not our media are entirely subservient. Doffing the cap to politicians, civil servants and the legal and medical profession is all they do.No evidence, then why the rush to put in refrigeration trailer, and fast track of the planning for a new mortuary Leo?
Lazy journos wont question this.
Its the only possibility of a proper health service here given our politicians have given up taking on the vested interest groups. One advantage of Brexit will hopefully be it might hasten this development. We wont be having part time consultants double jobbing in the private sector if it happens so no doubt they would fight it tooth and nail.We should examine the concept of an EU health service, that would redirect resources and staff to countries experiencing chronic hospital overcrowding and staff shortages.
Yes and the Consultants solution is to pay them more money!! May as well burn it.Thejournal reporting that applicants promised jobs in the health service have been waiting in some cases since January to transition to them because of a HSE recruitment freeze. This is happening when 21% of consultant positions are vacant and we have net emigration of doctors of 500 per annum, in spite of the govt bringing in agency workers from abroad.
That's their line right enough. Being honest working conditions and training opportunities are a bigger issue. You could increase pay 30k a man and it wont make much difference. Of course people in all walks of life will travel and best of luck to them i say. Unrealistic for a small country on the periphery of europe to try and compete with the likes of the US/UK on salary.Well we are losing 500 doctors per annum in emigration. If you don't up their pay they will keep moving to Dubai, Canada or Australia.
Presumably a pay rise 4 the chaps would solve that issue? ( according to the chaps)The brain drain of consultants has been associated with laxer admission criteria in A+E, contributing to overcrowding as junior doctors end up deciding who gets admitted.
