People in Ireland trust nurses and doctors more than Government!

DUBLIN: Ipsos MRBI, a market research firm, has conducted a study to determine how much faith the Irish people have in certain people, groups, and institutions.

The study found that 69% of Irish people do not trust Government Ministers, and 76% do not trust politicians in general.

Pharmacists continue to be the most trusted individuals in the country, with 96% of Irish people trusting them, followed by doctors (95%) and nurses (94%).

The National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) received an 87% trustworthiness score. Last year it was 91%.

According to Tarik Laher, director of Ipsos MRBI, young people trust NPHET more. “11% do not trust NPHET to tell the truth but seven in eight of us do. Actually higher again amongst our youngest cohorts. [Among] 15 to 24-year-old, 95% of them trust NPHET. So a very high score,” he said.

People believe that 31% of government ministers and 24% of politicians will tell the truth. Studies show that trust in our fellow citizens is on the rise. It rose to 58% from 54% in last year.
