    Default 3.500 jobs to be cut from health service next year ..

    Health service to cut 3,500 jobs next year under revised Croke Park plan - The Irish Times - Sat, Dec 08, 2012

    About 3,500 posts in the health service are to go next year, a new Department of Health report has confirmed.

    In its new plan for the implementation of the Croke Park agreement, the Department of Health says the Government is expected to set new targets to bring the number of staff in the health service down to 95,500 by the end of 2014.

    “This will require a net reduction of at least 3,200 whole-time equivalent posts in 2013,” the report says.

    The report warns that this figure does not include positions which were approved and funded but were unfilled at present. If it was decided not to fill them then the overall figure could rise to 3,800. The report was published on the Department’s website.
    I know the policy is to comment but I think on this part the title says it all .. BUT how long will this last when one reads:

    Unions are expected to express deep concern about the implications of the latest proposed staff cuts on services.
    And also reads:

    Some highly placed sources suggested that the Department of Health and the Health Service Executive were also considering a new incentivised career-break scheme aimed at about 700 staff.
    Feel the luxury people .. imagine being called into your bosses office in a private sector job - told to sit down and then asked how do you feel about a "new incentivised career-break scheme" .. shur what am i saying, this happens every week in the private sector, doesnt it?

    Cut pay not jobs. We need a maximum wage in the public sector. Govt advisors take note.

    Another fudge. Why don't we see jobs cut in revenue and other pen pushers. Pay needs to be cut across the board we can't carry on with a situation where the coping classes and the poor are carrying the burden of the bailout for the good of the few.

    I got to wonder what jobs are gonna be affected in this cut, is it the frontline staff like ambulance drivers,nurses, docs or will be highly paid consulants and their movational couchs?

    Its fairly f****** simple at this stage.

    Cut pay in the HSE and employ more frontline staff.

    Also clear out the 2,500 in Head Office that have NO WORK.

    Don't be surprised if the deal is designed in such a manner as to cost more to have HSE stay at home at do nothing, than to have them in the HSE.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Sure the last redundancy scheme resulted in staff who had already left the HSE getting redundancy payments
