Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Minister for Health Simon Harris TD with head of Slaintecare Laura Magahy at an announcement regarding Primary Care.
Here is the letter referred to in today’s @Independent_ie article by @Philip_Ryan. It’s incomprehensible that @SimonHarrisTD would allow the @HSELive to bring this in!https://t.co/BWNbAqWpeD pic.twitter.com/kG3LlrMUnA

Health Minister Simon Harris was blindsided by a letter detailing a virtual recruitment freeze in the HSE.
A letter detailing a plan to stall recruitment and overtime for a three-month period was obtained by Labour Party health spokesman Alan Kelly.
The Tipperary TD said the fact the minister was not aware of the letter was “amazing”. He spoke with the minister yesterday who confirmed he was not aware of the letter.
