The doctor, who received a leaked document from Tánaiste Leo Varadkar about a € 210 million deal between the state and a GP group, said it was given to him as part of a pre-existing information-sharing agreement.
One on Sunday evening from Dr. The statement released by Maitiú Ó Tuathail is in line with elements of the version of events outlined by Mr Varadkar on Saturday – including the allegation that the contents of the leaked document were largely closed at the time of its receipt.
In the statement, Dr. Ó Tuathail, the GP group of which he was president at the time – the National Association of General Practitioners (NAGP) – had been involved in “extensive consultations” with the Department of Health and the HSE on the chronic disease management program that was part of the final deal was, throughout 2018.
However, the NAGP was not directly involved in the talks on the entire new agreement, which ultimately ended with the Irish Medical Organization, a competing group.
In the statement made by Dr. Andrew Jordan, former chairman of the NAGP, said the talks included monthly meetings with both parties and that the association knew the gist of the proposed new contract, which was adopted by the state.
“In mid-April we received a copy of the final, agreed and announced program for the treatment of chronic diseases from the then Taoiseach. This was seen as a continuation of the government’s decision to consult the NAGP and its GP members and keep them informed on a continuous basis. “
The sensitivity of the information received and the extent to which it could be viewed as largely deregistered at the time of the leak is likely to be an integral part of the political ramifications of the controversy in the days ahead.
While the NAGP had a copy of the document in their possession in mid-April, they did not distribute it to members to encourage adoption of the proposed new agreement.
On Sunday, Dr. Ó Tuathail, this was due to the internal problems the organization was facing at the time.
Former NAGP leaders argue that their union, which fell into disarray after financial problems in 2019, cannot take a position on the document “without full access to the details it contains”.
“It was wrong that one group of general practitioners had access to the details of a chronic disease treatment program and another group of general practitioners did not have equal access to that information because the NAGP and its members were involved in its creation. ” They said.
“The Chronic Disease Treatment Program should be established for all general practitioners and therefore all general practitioners had the right to understand what the program included and what was required of them.”
