Susan Lynch: I refuse to be pushed out of health service
Veteran nurse Susan Lynch explains why the golden handshake on offer in the public service is far less attractive than it first appears
I REFUSE to be pushed out of the health service by some mandarins trying to save a couple of euro. That said, I was ready to go when the 'deal' was first announced.
There was huge interest in the hospital where I work and three information evenings were packed out by staff looking for information about how much money they could get.
A lot of nurses wanted to go -- but then they sat down and looked at the figures and realised they couldn't.
