Sir – We have all heard the stories about our failing health service, the lack of funds, the lack of beds, nurses and doctors, and too many managers.

My partner started a job in the HSE a number of months ago and I have been in and out of our local main A&E and medical assessment unit over the past few months also, with conversations in both instances and areas coming to the same conclusion – it’s not the above issues that are mainly to blame, but the restrictive demands and impact of the unions.

I heard instances where a new manager trying to introduce new, improved practices was ganged up on by his team, who insisted he be removed, and concocted identical stories of bullying and aggression. They were also refusing to complete work assigned to them by their line managers, saying they were too busy.
