Description:
The services have taken a beating on many fronts: closure of beds in hospitals, failure to develop community services, failure to fill essential vacancies, allowing senior managerial staff to go under a voluntary redundancy programme without replacement, allowing essential nursing personnel to go under the same programme without replacement and, finally, the wholesale abuse of student nurses in running a major portion of the service.' This quote from the Organisation's pre-budget submission of January 1989 was a clarion call to the Government on behalf of a depleted health service. Unfortunately, the call was ignored and the allocation for health services, in nett terms, was reduced further with the effect that the service was in crisis - as we predicted - by the end of May 1989.
