Health spending black hole threatens Budget giveaway
Overspend in health to 'limit pot' for Budget

The public's expectation of a 'giveaway' Budget has been dashed by a €600m black hole in spending by the Department of Health.

The increasingly ineffective Health Minister Simon Harris is receiving a furious backlash from his Cabinet colleagues as he fails to manage his department’s finances.

Despite the overspend, a record number of patients – 514,000 – are now on hospital waiting lists.

This is the most recent breakdown I can find of health expenditure, from 2016.

Here's an excellent paper on Irish health expenditure. Jenny O'Connor in the Department of Public Expenditure deserves credit because the HSE couldn't spare anyone of their 110,000 staff to look at what they're spending :evil:
Some inconvenient truths here:
Health expenditure has been rising rapidly for five years, staff recruitment is at record levels, medical card numbers are declining, high cost drug costs and legal claim costs are exploding (thanks again, Vicky Phelan).

Did anyone see this in the media?
