A New Ambition, New Direction for Health
Next month, SIPTU Health Division activists will debate several key motions at its Biennial Delegate Conference (BDC) in Pairc Ui Chaoimh, Cork that call for a new direction on how public health services are delivered.
Right alongside housing and precarious work, the funding of our health service is the number one concern for SIPTU members.
Over the last number of months, we have seen the tragic consequences the outsourcing of vital work has had on our health services and the chances of low paid health workers owning a home become a pipedream.
SIPTU Health Divisional Organiser, Paul Bell says that SIPTU members will have an opportunity to discuss and debate motions on how health workers can be more ambitious when it comes to campaigning to address these vital issues.
Minister for Disabilities, Finian McGrath, broadcaster and journalist, James Bloodworth whose book “Hired” delves into the ever-expanding growth of precarious work and CervicalCheck campaigner Vicky Phelan are among the several high profile speakers who will address the conference.
An exclusive interview with James Bloodworth will be premiered on Sunday 30th September.
