‘Honeymoon’ with the NHS – The Irish Independent
- by admin
On January 1, 2017, a nurse on her honeymoon left the Irish Government and joined the NHS.
A week later, on the morning of January 4, 2017 she arrived back in the UK, and was transferred to the Royal London Hospital.
A day later, she went into cardiac arrest, having suffered an irregular heartbeat.
She died on January 6, 2017.
In the months since, the Government has paid out nearly €600,000 to the family of the nurse, and a second funeral is to be held on January 10, 2017 at St Andrew’s Church, Dublin.
The family says the case has made them “uncomfortable” and has been “extremely distressing”.
They also have a petition to be presented to the Government, and have been in contact with senior doctors and nurses, and with the Royal College of Surgeons, to raise awareness about what happens to nurses on leave.
They have also raised the issue with the Irish Independent.
The RN who is on leave, Mary Lou, said: “It’s not good for the people that I love the most.
It’s just not good.”
I’m very aware of the importance of the public.
It means that I don’t have to go to the funeral because I can still speak to my family in Ireland.
“This is just the way the system is set up, it’s very unfair.”
It’s like when a person is on the NHS for six months and then they are discharged on the 15th day of that six month and then have to come back to work.
