Congratulations to our Cathaoirleach, Georgina Wade, for appearing in the Irish Times health supplement, HEALTHplus, today, Tuesday, 26 August. George was in conversation with journalist Fiona Tyrrell for the column, On the Couch.
To the question “What do you regard as the top three problems facing Ireland’s health system?”, George replied:-
Making the patient the centre of the system, getting the vision for primary care implemented faster and finally combating bureaucratic inertia and bungling - next month, children will start school unable to talk properly because they have not had the speech language therapy they need, while this month we hear that students who have spent the last three years of their lives studying to become speech language therapists cannot get jobs.
