The Irish Patients’ Association’s (IPA) core funding of €117k from the Health Service Executive (H.S.E.) has been “axed from April 2013”. The I.P.A has been funded by the H.S.E/D.O.H. since 2004 and has a service agreement with the H.S.E.

The current situation is grossly unfair as the process to choose H.S.E preferred patient advocacy groups was neither transparent nor negotiable.
