Public Accounts Committee

2020 Report of the Comptroller and Auditor General and Appropriation Accounts
Vote 38 - Health

9:30 am

Mr. Robert Watt:

I am not going to give the Deputy a definitive commitment because I am not sure of our work programme at the moment. We have a lot on. I am aware that the chief nursing officer has ongoing engagement with the Irish Medical Organisation, IMO, and representative bodies, and works with the different elements about this whole question of working hours and conditions and so on.

It has been a real challenge for people over the past two years in particular. I hear what the Deputy is saying and I do not disagree with him. I will take it back and see if there is any further work. There might have been work we have done that I am not familiar with that looks at it in more detail. We can do that.
