Found a few interesting blogs on the Irish Health system. First is The Bitter Pill – An insiderâ€™s view on the Irish Health Service. Blurb:
Iâ€™m a junior doctor working in the Irish Health Service, and Iâ€™m absoutely sick and tired of seeing nothing being done to address the various problems running unchecked that have nearly brought the service to its knees. Iâ€™ve decided that the only way things will ever change is if people who know whatâ€™s really going on inside the ranks and behind the close doors speak out. We need whistleblowers.
“I went to my local doctor, I just wanted to know what to do. He just said to me, some kids turn out to be scum.”
“I started crying, I was in the bottom of a big black hole. I said what am I going to do now, I thought I’ll give him money for heroin and that will keep him going. We went off to Dublin to get the heroin.”
