IMO Submissions to the Public Service Pay Commission - Recruitment and Retention Issues
The IMO has made detailed submissions to the Public Service Pay Commission concerning the recruitment and retention issues facing the consultant, non-consultant hospital doctor, and public health doctor workforces. These submissions set out many of the barriers currently operating to inhibit effective medical recruitment and retention.
Unless radical action is taken to resolve this crisis within the medical professional in Ireland, we will be unable to deliver the kind of specialist and specialised medical care taken as a right in other jurisdictions. In view of the considerable problems affecting our health services in this regard the IMO has urged the Public Service Pay Commission to make recommendations that can act to mitigate the scale of this crisis within the Irish public health service.
