Did HSE deceive ‘Be on Call for Ireland’ applicants? Out of 73,000 applicants, only 321 were recruited

DUBLIN: HSE has been accused of deceiving applicants of the ‘Be on Call for Ireland’ scheme launched in Ireland in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Of the 73,000 applicants, only 321 were recruited, leading to a new controversy.

Only 0.4%of the applicants were recruited as part of a campaign that cost €600,000 during the COVID-19 crisis.

‘Be on Call’ was one of the first recruit drives during the COVID pandemic. The project aimed to recall former health workers at home and abroad to overcome the potential crisis in the health sector following the Pandemic.

The new figures were revealed in a parliamentary question raised by Independent TD Mattie McGrath from Tipperary. At the same time, Mr. McGrath said the government had shown gross fraud on the part of health workers and applicants currently working. The majority registered as part of the campaign based on trust in the government. But he says the government has betrayed them.

Many foreign countries, including Australia, came to support Ireland’s COVID fight. But the government’s behavior was unwise. He blamed the recent crisis in the hospital sector for the government’s misguided policy.

Meanwhile, Health Minister Stephen Donnelly responded to the allegation that another 680 people were set to be hired at any time as part of the campaign and that they would take up the job at the required stage.

He added that HSE’s Business Health Services division has so far recruited about 8,750 people in the wake of the COVID crisis.
