Another mess for the HSE

ANOTHER fine mess for the Health Service Executive and, this time, the Minister for Health is talking tough. Heads will roll if any official is found to have misappropriated public funds connected with an HSE training fund, she said.
Could this be the beginning of the transparency, accountability and responsibility that has been so notable by its absence in the health service?
It appears more than half of a total of €2.35m from the training fund set up by the HSE seven years ago, and supposed to be administered by the union SIPTU, cannot be accounted for.
