Description:
It gives me very great pleasure to present the Annual Report of the Irish NUrses Organisation for the year 2002. This is the th ird report, as President, that I have had the pleasure of presenting and I remain grati fied that the Organisation continues to grow, in terms of both numbers and influence. as we work together in the interest of nurses and midwives. On a personal note the past year has been particularly challenging and I wish to CloreSpilfone, PresidentlNO begin by thanking each and every member and friend who has assisted me, in any way, over the last number of months. The expressions of warmth and goodwill have been of tremendous assistance and. at the same time, very empowering. As we all know 2002 was another extremely busy year for the Irish health service as its staff and physical infrastructure struggled. under enormous strain. to maintain a satisfactory quality and quantum of service. From a nursing and midwifery perspective the year will be remembered for the period when benchmarking, although promising much, delivered disappointingly linle for nurses and midwives - it failed, in its entirety, to answer our legitimate claims for a reduced working week. improved shift premiums and a Dublin weighting allowance. At the end of the year the Organisation was involved in discussions on a possible new national pay and social agreement, and our priorities were and remain to ensure adequate and satisfactory pay and conditions for nurses/midwives in a working environment that is conducive to high quality of care. Clare Spillane. President. INO.
