Have to disagree there, the real culprit here from what the speakers were saying lastnight is the WHB and not the minister. He gave them the money for the services and Sheila Ryan and co. squandered it. Then we have a bunch of overpaid consultants in Galway who frankly don't fancy trekking up and down to and from Castlebar as they can stay in Galway and get rich from VHI/BUPA patients.
It was an excellent demonstration of people power lastnight with politcal point scoring not even coming into it as Chairman Joe Johnston wouldn't allow it.
