This week, there were more health headlines, emanating from a frank interview with HSE chief Tony O'Brien, the deferral of the INMO nurses' strike action in emergency departments and the publication of the HSE 2016 service plan.

Tony O'Brien spoke about how the Government's plan to abolish the HSE resulted in "the absence of a clear timeline and road map" for the health system that made running it "challenging" and the political failure to produce "a systematic and realistic funding formula". In other words, this Government under-funded health.
