A Cork Fine Gael Senator says the HSE is “guilty of recklessly
undermining the capacity of the Irish hospital system”
Colm Burke is the party’s spokesman on Health in the Seanad
and he’s referring to how the HSE gives Irish trained Junior Doctors
only 6 month contracts.
That is pushing many to emigrate to Australia, New Zealand and Canada
for better job security and conditions.
Meanwhile the HSE is having to recruit Doctors from developing
countries to fill the gap
Senator Colm Burke wants like the Labour Court to FORCE the HSE to
give Irish trained Junior Doctors longer contracts
