Covid-19 has cast a spotlight on Ireland’s health service like never before. The added pressure of a global pandemic has exposed cracks in the system that cannot be ignored. In this show, hosted by Yvonne Redmond, we hear untold stories and fresh perspectives from industry insiders, explore how Ireland compares to international best practices and ask, when it comes to healthcare: what do we get right, get wrong and how do we close the gap?
This introductory episode digs into the pandemic itself, with guest Professor Tomás Ryan from Trinity College Dublin and Mika Salminen, from the National Institute for Health and Welfare of Finland. Ireland’s in the middle of another lengthy lockdown. Finland never had one. We explore why that is and how we turn things around.
