The HSE is in the wake of yet another Corruption scandal, this week Fine Gael Minister for Health Leo Varadkar confirmed that the HSE is suspending all payments to medical supplies company Eurosurgical amid claims of unethical practice.

A report this week alleged that a number of staff at two Dublin Hospitals provided commercially sensitive information to the Dublin based company, the information reportedly included competitors’ price lists in exchange for expensive holidays and gifts. The individuals -who co-ordinate the purchasing of medical supplies with St. Vincent’s University Hospital and the Beacon Hospital in Dublin- are at the centre of the corruption Scandal. Minister Varadkar stated “he was very disappointed that anyone working in the health service would behave in such an unethical way”. But the reality is that he is just disappointed they got caught?

In the meantime, the Dail health committee is set to meet with the management from St. Vincent’s University Hospital and the Beacon Hospital over the allegations, This Government has had one corruption scandal after another, stated Ben Gilroy of Direct Democracy Ireland, after all the pre-election promises of ending Cronyism and Corruption, reality is this problem is just getting worse. For Leo Varadkar to preach about unethical ways is pathetic, after all  how ethical is it to have hundreds of people on trolleys in our hospitals on a daily basis, Or family’s having to travel hundreds of miles for treatment because this government has closed vital services in their local hospitals. Or worse still people with serious health issues in need of a medical card having their applications inexcusably refused, The HSE is not fit for purpose and this has been established time and time again.

Mr.Gilroy also stated, We must put equality back into what has become a two tier health service with the slow and steady privatisation and parallel running down of our public services, we see vested interests at play in the corporatisation of our Health and believe it is not in the people’s best interests to be beholden to a Health ‘industry’ as this weeks corruption scandal clearly shows is widespread within the HSE, We can no longer permit Pharmaceutical or Medical supply companies with the help of insider trading to corrupt our health service.

He went on to say that the people of this country are sick of corruption and we must get serious about ending it, instead of behaving as if it does not exist. Come the General Election if elected I and Direct Democracy Ireland will tackle these issues head on, to put an end to the Machiavellian politics that has our country on its knees.

    Hi just to let you know, there seems to be an election in the air. My wife has just been told that she will get to see a consultant about a lump in her back in the next 2 weeks. What is so good about that you may ask?/ She has been waiting over 2 years just to see a consultant. When she was on the phone this morning to WRH, she was informed that a directive has only just arrived from the Minister for so called Health, that all waiting lists have been authorised to be clear in the next 3 months. She has been referred to a private hospital in Cork so now we have to travel from Kilkenny to Cork and all the extra expenses that will entail. Maybe this is his way of trying to deflect attention away from this scandal on top of all the other scandals and yet nobody gets held to be accountable. Bring in Direct Democracy and make these corrupts held accountability for their actions.
