    Seriously, look at Portlaoise Hospital. Look at the numbers dying waiting for an appointment. The HSE don’t even capture if they’re dying from the condition which is the subject of the appointment.

    How many hundreds (it is in the hundreds) are dying each year waiting for an appointment?

    Meanwhile we can afford to pay for Orkambi (neither England nor Scotland can) but can’t provide basic general care.

      Would it be reasonable to ask that the HSE (and other departments, Housing for example) publish daily or even weekly updates on the relevant figures involved instead of being drip fed stats directly from the department or indirectly as highlighted here. It seems easy to mismanage your brief, occasionally admit to a problem, promise to address it and then repeat over and over again, year after year. In this IT age would it not be easy to publish the raw data on a daily basis on a website so that the actual stakeholders can see what a mess it is and to allow them to point to the facts and demand progress. I know Minister Incompetence would not be a fan of this but fupp them, it’s not about them after all.

        Speaking from recent experience of HSE information systems, it’s total chaos, unaccountable total chaos.

        And it really is a matter of life and death.
