You tell ’em, Bill.
HSE CEO Paul Reid at Dr Steevens’ Hospital, Dublin yesterday
With more than 1,800 HSE staff out due to Covid-related issues around the country, University Hospital Limerick and Galway University Hospital confirmed yesterday they had to cancel surgeries.
In some cases they even had to close wards due to the increase in Covid-19 patients at a time of growing levels of respiratory illness and emergency attendances.

Health Service Executive CEO Paul Reid has said there is a “significant proportion” of healthcare staff who are not able to work because of Covid-19 infections.
Speaking on Morning Ireland, he said that from his perspective he is anxious to see booster vaccine campaigns for health care workers, adding that the National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC) continues to assess the evidence relating to booster shots.
He said his concerns relate to healthcare workers becoming ill with Covid-19 and the subsequent impact on the health service and “secondly, what we are seeing is emerging outbreaks within healthcare settings.”
All health care staff in Ireland took the so called vaccines voluntarily … 1800 are now infected … forcing more on people will not pass … it can’t be allowed to pass https://t.co/siskJlAWaz
