Taoiseach in the dark over HSE top-ups

TAOISEACH Enda Kenny was kept in the dark about unapproved "top-up" payments made to senior executives in hospitals and health agencies.

It comes amid growing controversy as many doctors and health managers are refusing to say if their lucrative pay allowances are being financed from funds raised by the public.

Mr Kenny was only informed about the details of the amounts paid last Monday – 24 hours before the details went into the public domain.
