Hundreds of Irish people are expected to go to Europe for treatment in public and private hospitals this year under the new Cross Border Directive, (CBD) which provides for the first time that the State will pay for treatments which are already available in this country. Maureen Browne reports.
The HSE has sought an additional €1.867bn to run the health services in 2016, but Health Minister, Dr. Leo Varadkar and Public Expenditure and Reform Minister, Mr. Brendan Howlin have said it was not possible for the Government to provide this level of funding. Maureen Browne reports.
The uneasy relationship which has developed between the HSE and some voluntary service providers – including some of the powerful public voluntary hospitals is posing serious challenges for senior health managers in both sectors, writes Maureen Browne.
The National Rehabilitation Hospital has received planning approval and has secured the funding required to complete Phase 1 of the planned new hospital development on its existing campus in Dún Laoghaire, Co. Dublin, writes Rosemarie Nolan.
The HSE is a transparent and accountable organisation with performance monitoring and management arrangements in place to focus on driving operational performance improvements and also to deal with under performance and where the health providers fail to meet their targets, Ms. Laverne McGuinness, HSE Deputy Director General told a meeting of the HMI Dublin Mid Leinster Regional Meeting in the Dublin Dental Hospital last Thursday evening.
As we plan to commemorate a centenary of independence, the woefully inadequate investment in facilities to cater for the end of life needs of older people since independence justifies a bold initiative to make amends urgently, argues Denis Doherty.

The HMI is the professional body for healthcare managers across all sectors of the health services in Ireland. Its overall aim is the development of standards of management competence and practice.
