LIMERICK MEDICAL DISPUTE UNFURLS

In a recent convocation, medical practitioners in Limerick engaged in deliberations aimed at forging a cohesive strategy for serving the members of the Limerick Federation of Ireland’s Societies. This collabourative endeavour hinges upon mutually agreed fees and conditions stipulated by the Medical Committee.

Responding to the doctors’ proposition, the Secretary of the Federation conveyed in a missive that no contractual nexus exists between the societies and Limerick’s medical professionals. The Secretary underscored that this absence stems from the compelled resignation of all medical officers from their positions on December 31st, in adherence to professional mandates. Despite this circumstance, the Federation opted not to rescind the notice previously issued to its members.

Scrutinizing the proposed panel, the Federation’s Secretary categorically portrayed it as an endeavour to reinstate the erstwhile medical practitioners into their prior roles and privileges. Moreover, a protest was articulated against the fee list’s perceived implications concerning “suspected malingerers.” The Secretary voiced apprehensions about a perceived pattern where medical practitioners inquire from private patients about their society membership, subsequently levying fees higher than those imposed on non-society working individuals. The Secretary underscored that members willingly remitted their fees, asserting their prerogative, facilitated through the Federation, to redress concerns within their profession as they deem appropriate.
