Because of the Croke Park agreement, I'm ashamed to be a HSE worker at the moment.
Yes, with the moratorium on staff recruitment I know we're coming under increasing fire as regards trying to provide care to our patients/residents.
In my own field, care of the elderly, we're inadequately staffed and overworked -- but at least we have jobs. When I previously wrote about this in the Sunday Independent, there was a massive outcry from my own profession stating that we're professionals and should be paid accordingly. What prats!
