Offence to carers
Sir -- I am writing in response to a letter on the failure of childcare (November 7). I have been working in the area of childcare, or to put it correctly social care, for the last 20 years on a voluntary and professional basis (in the private and the public sector) and I find this letter quite offensive to my profession.
I can understand the writer's frustration with the HSE bureaucracy and I am sure other care workers feel the same.
However, as we live in a democracy, if a complaint is made against someone, they have the right to reply.
