Current recruitment pause in the HSE is crippling the health service
The general secretary of the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO) Phil Ni Sheaghdha said people were now afraid to go to public hospitals.
She said they were afraid of the waiting times and afraid they may not be seen in time.
Speaking at the Oireachtas committee on health on Wednesday, she insisted that despite official denials, there were restrictions in place on staff being taken on in the health service.
She said directives sent out by top HSE management on recruitment represented a de facto moratorium.
She said the recruitment pause was affecting front line services for patients while the health of personnel currently employed was being affected by the pressures caused by staff shortages.
