As part of the 2008 agreement, the medical advisors agreed to new working conditions from July 2008, including an increase in their weekly working hours from 37 to 39 hours. The judge then agreed to make the settlement terms a court order. The agreement is expected to cost the state €200 million and add €60 million to the consultants` annual payment. According to the lawyer, the transaction will not only apply to the main cases, but also to other advisors whose cases are brought before a court and to other non-procedural advisors falling under the terms of the transaction. Hospital doctors will receive a salary increase after their infringement claims against the Health Service Executive and the state have been resolved. The judge was to hear several main cases in complaints filed by hundreds of medical consultants, who claimed that there was a breach of contract with respect to the salary promises agreed in the 2008 consultant contract.

According to the lawyer, the transaction is “a new dawn” that will have the effect of “fully realizing” the vision and objectives of the 2008 agreement. The cases, if opened before the judge, are expected to last several weeks. You can forward this information to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will raise your case with HSE.
