This afternoon.

Fianna Fail TD Stephen Donnelly pursues the governmetn the cost of leasing private hospitals during Covid-19.

In April, the state paid €115 million for mostly unused private beds from the Bon Secours health group,, Denis O’Brien’s Beacon Medical Group and Larry Goodman’s Galway Clinic among others.

In The Dáil last week, RISE TD Paul Murphy TD raised the discrepancy between the €44,000 paid per bed in Ireland and the €10,000 paid per bed in Britain.

Good times.

    Wouldn’t it be simpler to just… use them? Those of us lingering on waiting lists would be perfectly happy to attend a non-Covid19 hospital for the long-awaited treatment.

    Unless, of course, the doctors are all working on Covid19, and the idea is to take them off that job and return them to their private practices?

    Surely the time to whinge about Dinny and Lars was when they got involved with healthcare and not after? It’s long been a tax efficient way to print money. As for the Bon Secours – they can tooty pants off.

    Is this Stephen Donnelly trying to look as some sort of opposition of FF to FG, while FF wants to sleep with FG?

    Dinny (Obese) and Lars (aged 103) are both in high risk groups by the look of it. They need somewhere to go and get priority treatment.

    Was some emergency legislation passed once to enable Larry-maith-an-fear, (as Christy Moore used to call him), to get out of some difficulties?

    Public and private medicine need to be merged and become quality universal medicine available to all citizens and residents in the state. I don’t care what kind of political representative says this – whether cute hoors, clientalists, crypto-fascists, liberals or social democrats. Ideas need to be considered on their own merits, not according to whether they are aired by chancers, angels, devils or ranting leftists or moderate bourgeois radicals.

    Tis payback time for donating towards the last election. Anyway, Larry Goodfella could do with getting the Galway Clinic back to treat his min. wage slavies who are coming down with Covid on a daily basis

    He’s right. They should return the private hospitals and let them get back to hip operations and the like.

  9. Truth in the News

    What is the level of infection in the meat processing sector, and how many many beds
    and facilities remain unused in the Private Hospital Sector since the middle of March
