NHI calls on Government to fulfil commitment and ensure immediate issuing of pandemic payment to frontline staff

Friday May 27, 2022

27th May 2022: Tadhg Daly, NHI CEO comments: “Five months on from its announcement, confusion and unwarranted delay still presents regarding the pandemic payment to nursing home and healthcare staff. These staff were the frontline of an unprecedented health emergency which took great toll on their wellbeing as they valiantly strived to protect the most vulnerable from the pandemic. There is pressing requirement for the Government to expedite the rollout of the payment to quell the frustration that has emerged amongst frontline workers due to the excessive delay in administering the payment.”
