    Which begs the question will the cuts come from the top heavy management/administration or will it be front line services?

    I'd like to disagree with you but i fear you may be right.

    More unnecessary deaths on the way. How much did they spend on preventative medicine for bird flu 'epidemic'.

    Fingers crossed i or no-one belong to me fails ill this winter.

    She is going to stop taking a salary and expenses? That will save a lot.

    How can Harney say there will be massive cutbacks without FG and Labour agreeing? I thought they all wanted cross party agreement?

    It's the PD agenda. Cut, cut, cut until people get so disillusioned with the Public Health System that they'll take out health insurance.

    Win, win for Mary and the state in a regulated insurance market where the largest insurer is a semi-state. Screw the patient, think of the profit! Bonanza.

    What the hell do all the bureaucrats in Hawkins House Department of Health actually do all day? Isn't the HSE meant to be running the health system?

    Ditch the disgusting Croke Park deal and health cuts mightn't be so draconian, well there is always the IMF to ditch the croke park deal.
