Lack of Funding Compromises Viability of Cobh Community Hospital - 25.11.16
Press Release

Funding deficits within Cobh Community Hospital have led to a situation where the Board of Management have sought wage cuts up to 7% for staff.  

This situation has arisen due to inadequate resources being made available by the funding authority, the HSE and the National Treatm

ent Purchase Fund (NTPF) under the fair deal scheme. 

 

There is a significant difference in the monies awarded to all such facilities across the health sector; the deferential can vary as much as €210 per bed per week.

Speaking today, Mary Rose Carroll, INMO Industrial Relations Officer, said “It is totally unacceptable that the staff of Cobh Community Hospital should be expected to take a pay cut to subsidise the running of the hospital, at a time when pay restoration is the focus of all employees across the public and private sector.”

“It is ludicrous that a valuable facility, such as Cobh Community Hospital, should be compromised in this manner; our members are seeking political support at local and national level to assist us in resolving this situation. In the absence of these funding issues being addressed through political pressure and dialogue; our members will have no option but to ballot for industrial action to protect their pay and conditions.”
