    The Health service will remain mediocre until,

    1) It stops being run for the benefit of public service unions
    2) Politicians stop having any say in how it is configured (e.g Portaloise hospital and Charlie Flanagan).

    that’s it.

      Are you including the nurses’ union there? Can you explain how lower-paid frontline health professionals with poor working conditions will lead to a better health service, and where else in the world that’s been the case?

        Yes.

        Public service unions prevent patients benefitting from modern opening hours (not just 9 to 4.30), flexible service delivery, proper availability of out of hours emergency services (e.g weekend MRI scanning), staff being where they are now needed (not just where they have always been), the most appropriate staff dong the job (e.g operating room technicians instead of nurses) etc, etc, etc, etc.

          Perhaps have all the King’s men…and their horses on standby.
          Though fable has it that they may not be much help.

      Don’t forget Shane Ross – great at the newsworthy soundbite when he was in opposition… but a disaster as minister

            Leo was always a great man for the soundbite and commenting on any dept but his own. Slightly harder to do that as Taoiseach.
