Tony Holohan

Covid-19 booster shots to be given ‘off label’ Holohan says –  Beginning to speak his first ever words of truth.  However it is unlikely a single person about to be “boosted” will ever read his words.  Starting to cover his tracks now.  Wonder how many people will hear the penny drop for themselves in reading his words. – 13 Sept 2021

New chief with big challenges

“Holohan cites Susie Long – the Kilkenny woman who died of bowel cancer after she languished on a waiting list for colonoscopy – as the case that triggered serious questions about cancer care here. And he focuses on an unexpected target when asked about the fallout from the breast cancer scandals: “Medics have encouraged people to develop a sense of infallibility in their decision making . . . there is no such thing as the ‘all clear’ from any medical test and we need to improve the public’s understanding of this.”

So what would happen now, under his regime, if a letter arrived in the department from a hospital consultant detailing specific patient safety concerns? “There are new procedures in place in the HSE, Hiqa and here . . . the letter won’t be filed away – I’m now personally responsible for it . . . it won’t be just a question of sending it to the HSE with a sense of ‘that’s great, it’s off my desk’.”

He is adamant that – however long it takes to deal with an issue – a letter like this will continue to come back on his agenda.” – 7 April 2009
