Irish Doctors to Be Made More Answerable
New proposals are being introduced in the health care system to make doctors more accountable for their work.

The Tánaiste and Minister for Health, Mary Harney said that the proposal includes various action plans such as increasing the number of commoners on the Medical Council to 7 out of a total of 25 members. Various procedures are being introduced which would make it easy for the common man to initiate inquiries into the behavior of doctors.

All this would help to keep a check on the doctors and prove that they are well informed about the modern practices. Ms Harney said that these measures are laid keeping in mind the interest of the public. These reforms are beings appreciated both by the Irish Patients Association and the Irish Medical Council.
