Description:
When reading this Report in the latter part of 1984 one must remember that it deals with the year 1983. Already many of the matters referred to have been decided during the early months of 1984, not least the composition of the 2nd Medical Council. The Council decided at its meeting in December 1982, to suggest to the profession that it should purchase its own office premises in the Dublin area. This decision was unanimous. The proposal and estimated cost was put furward in the Newsletter in February circulated to all those on the Register. While the proposal gave rise to extensive comment within our profession only 300 letters approximately were received by me. Some members wrote in support, many of the letters were indignant and critical, presuming that the decision to purchase had already been taken much of the comment in the medical press was distorted. A second Newsletter was circulated in May answering points made in the correspondence and press reports. To determine the views of the profession as a whole, doctors were asked individually when their retention fees were invoiced, to indicate whether they favoured a once off increase in the retention fee to purchase office accommodalion or, the price wrillen off over a five year period. The analysis of the 4,400 that had paid their annual retention fee by September, showed thar 2,550 or 57% completed the questionnaire. Of this number, 81% were in favour of purchasing accommodarion. In the Iight of these findings, the Council holds statutory quarterly meeting in September decided to refer the matter to its House and Finance Committee for further consideration.
