Watching a recording of the Vincent Brown show mid week, Constantin Gurdgiev was on and he replied to some do gooder about the so called ' lack of resources ' for the HSE. Gurdgiev stated that - " Ireland spends 8.8% of national income on health, Sweden 9.1%, UK 8.4% and Finland 8.2% ". The do gooder challenged him and he told the do gooder he could check it out at the Central Satistics Office.
So why do we have such a terrible health service. Ok most of us know the answer - except the HSE leeches and the Workers fo the World Unite loonies - that the staff have milked the country dry. If I remember reading a year or two ago that ambulance crews in Ireland earn more than consultant doctors in Finland
And then of course just like other public ' servants ' since they get buckets of time off due to shift work ( to overcome the stress of their selfless heroism and humanity etc, etc ) many of them are off driving taxi's etc
Since the Govt. have created this Frankeinstein - what can be done to get a decent health service in this country and get those leeches to do a day's work like the rest of us ?
