    Default Doctors (in Ireland) are paid too much, says new EU report

    As if this was news to even the dog on the street......

    However, its good to have international credance to the scandelous bleeding of cash from our health service by hospital doctors, especially the 'royalty' class, called consultants.

    Doctors here are paid too much, says new EU report - National News - Independent.ie

    Among other things, the report states "The Commission, which highlights that Irish hospital doctors earn twice what their UK counterparts get, wants the Government to recognise more degrees from Europe and further afield. The HSE recognises far fewer degrees than the UK, for example."

    I hope the troika stays a little longer in the country and puts the boot in where our politicians (your vested interests at heart) continue to cave in miserably

    the dodgy doctors and the legal leeches

    are fingered in this report
    just like the priests, the truth will out
    these people who have been sucking the money from the taxpayers for years,
    will now be outed

    we are a very ignorant people
    but education and the truth will help us get these leeches

    GPs are the real scam artists. 60 quid for 10 minutes work, cash in hand. How much tax to they pay?

    Does this report open the door for the government to finally tackle this ridiculous situation ?

    Good question. Most GPs are, I imagine.

    the restriction of entry into the profession is a major bug bear which causes this and to compound the artificial restriction of entry into the profession there seems to be (and no offense) more and more part time women which restricts supply even more.

    if so you can bet they write off everything: practice expenses, travel, car, training, office, charitable contributions, energy savings home improvement credit, investment and tax expenses (no pun intended). The actual tax rate paid for self-employed GPs is most likely converging towards 0%.
