Tallaght Hospital secures €12m overdraft from AIB – RTÉ News
The hospital was over budget by over €10m in July.
In a statement tonight, the hospital said it was managing its finances prudently and had made savings of 6% in its budget this year, despite a 5% increase in in-patient care.
Tallaght is one of around five major hospitals that are heavily over budget and last year it was over budget by over €14m.
The Government has said there will be no supplementary health budget to assist health overruns.
The HSE said tonight that under Service Level Agreements (SLAs) these hospitals are permitted to seek an overdraft up to 7% of their budget for the final quarter of the year.
