We are very concerned by the the decision of the HSE to apply the public service sick leave scheme to general practitioners without any negotiation or “consultation”.

This matter is of such importance to our members that we have had no choice but to take legal advice.

At this stage it is unclear to our legal advisors on what basis this scheme is being applied.

As you will see from the attached letter to Paddy Burke we are seeking further clarification. We will be in contact with you over the forthcoming days keeping you informed of our progress.
