Cross Border Directive for health care abroad. 

Cross Border Directive for health care abroad. 

    Surgery in our new Spanish hospital is just some paperwork away!    Since the Cross Border Directive made the news in Ireland a couple of weeks back, here is Surgery now, we are replying to hundreds of emails asking a version of the same question?    Can I really get health care abroad through the Cross Border Directive?   The simple answer is YES! Here’s how it works for Surgery in Spain.   In 2011 the European Parliament in Brussels introduced the EU Directive on cross-border healthcare. This is far from “the brand new health care abroad scheme”...

Staffing problems causing longer waiting times for surgery.

Staffing problems causing longer waiting times for surgery.

Waiting lists in Ireland are getting longer, not shorter.    The HSE has recently told us that staffing issues are the big problem in ever-increasing waiting times for relatively straightforward procedures; Cataract surgery, hips, knees, and even weight loss surgery can be carried out through the HSE for free in Spain.  The reason for increased waiting times is that they simply don't have the staff numbers in Ireland.  A decade ago, Spanish staff went to Ireland to work. They were attracted by the way of life, the culture, and the relatively high wage compared to the cost of living; rent,...
