Agreeing with the Opposition (a little)

with 3 comments

According to Enda Kenny, the HSE is a “bloated, bureaucratic, administrative monster”. Hear, hear. A pity I don’t hear anyone arguing that this €14 billion monster should be slain.

  2. It amazes me how quick people are torush to judgement about the HSE. It an organisation with over 100,000 people and people expect it to be perfect. It will take many years and a series of redundancy agreements before we see a more streamlined organisation.

    The HSE is delivering a good service to many millions per year. Is there room for improvement yes of course there is. Do we want to go back to the era where penny pinching grubby local councillors decide where resources are allocated?

    Problems with the Health Service have existed for the last 50 years plus.

    The system needed radical change thats what we are getting now, but lets be realistic it could take another 5-10 years.

  3. Hi Barry, thanks for the comment!

    You make some excellent points, and I didn’t say in my post what kind of alternative I’d like to see in place. For whatever it’s worth, I have no reason to believe the Irish government’s pre-HSE attempts to provide healthcare were any better.
