ISCP welcomes the publication of HSCP Panel Recruitment Survey

Survey findings send clear message that current system not fit for purpose

The Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (ISCP) welcomes the publication of the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI) survey of HSE panel system inclusive of physiotherapist input. The results send a clear message that the current system does not work well, it is unfair, inefficient, inequitable, not fit for purpose and should be replaced, as pointed out by the ISCP in a letter to the HSE in April 2019

The PSI commissioned Behaviour & Attitudes (B&A) to carry out research amongst just over 1,250 Health and Social Care Professionals (HSCPs). This piece of research was embarked on to understand attitudes towards the current panel system of recruitment within the Health Service Executive (HSE). From the responses of the HSCPs that took part in the survey, the following key findings are highlighted:

  • 92% of HSCPs say the current HSE National Panel System does not work well as a method of recruitment;
  • 86% of HSCPs say the current HSE National Panel System is an unfair method of recruitment;
  • 93% of HSCPs agree that the HSE National Panel should be replaced with an alternative system of recruitment;
  • 87% of HSCPs say the HSE National Panel System is not an efficient method of recruitment;
  • 88% of HSCPs say the HSE National Panel System is not fit for purpose.
