Department of Health
A significant number of business cases in respect of additional incremental credit beyond point 6 of the consultant pay scale under the procedure in place for such applications were received by my Department in respect of consultants who worked in private hospitals when the Safety Net agreement was put in place. To deal with these cases, my officials worked through large volumes of submitted documentation, with relevant material to be considered in respect of each case.
I understand that all of these cases have now been processed by my officials and will be submitted shortly to the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, in line with the Incremental Credit Framework, for consideration and final determination.
