@maeveorourke @SenLynnRuane @Donnchadhol @seansherlocktd @CharlieFlanagan @ConorUCCLaw @maireadenright @maglaundries Redress schemes can hardly be improved upon. Measures to optimise cost cutting include
@maeveorourke @SenLynnRuane @Donnchadhol @seansherlocktd @CharlieFlanagan @ConorUCCLaw @maireadenright @maglaundries 1. The introduction of closing dates for applications. Redress schemes progressed from being open (HepC/HIV) to closed in some cases. The time period was reduced from 60 days (Lourdes) to 20 days (#symphysiotomy).
@maeveorourke @SenLynnRuane @Donnchadhol @seansherlocktd @CharlieFlanagan @ConorUCCLaw @maireadenright @maglaundries 2. The introduction of exclusions
The Lourdes scheme introduced two, age (no #redress for ovariotomy if 40 or over) and doctor ID (women similarly abused by doctors other than Dr Neary were excluded from redress).
@maeveorourke @SenLynnRuane @Donnchadhol @seansherlocktd @CharlieFlanagan @ConorUCCLaw @maireadenright @maglaundries 3. An exclusion introduced by the RIRB in 2003 (no redress if similarly abused in non scheduled institutions) has become a feature of #redress. #Ireland
@maeveorourke @SenLynnRuane @Donnchadhol @seansherlocktd @CharlieFlanagan @ConorUCCLaw @maireadenright @maglaundries 4. Broke new ground in 2013. The #Magdalene scheme required applicants to waive their legal and constitutional rights as a condition of entry to the scheme.
@maeveorourke @SenLynnRuane @Donnchadhol @seansherlocktd @CharlieFlanagan @ConorUCCLaw @maireadenright @maglaundries 5. Cost cutting reached new heights in 2014. The #symphysiotomy scheme's requirement for the production of medical records dating back some fifty years, involving closed hospitals and deceased doctors
@maeveorourke @SenLynnRuane @Donnchadhol @seansherlocktd @CharlieFlanagan @ConorUCCLaw @maireadenright @maglaundries 6. The setting of impossible criteria has become a feature of #redress in #Ireland. Almost one third of all applicants were denied entry to the #symphysiotomy scheme.
