Have the HSE. Temple Street Children’s Hospital, Abbott Ireland & United Drug Distributors Ireland Ltd. Played a double Whammy with a new twist on the old “Three-card trick?”





The photos you see here were forwarded to streetdogs.blog the word on the street, by one of our readers. A young lady whose 15-month-old baby is attending Temple Street Children’s Hospital, for a failure to thrive condition. This young lady and her partner were given to understand that some samples of suitable dietary supplements for trial would be delivered to their home by a delivery service.

The couple, of course, was delighted when they saw a reputable delivery company’s van, pull up outside their gate, and the driver approaching their front door with three boxes in his arms. Upon opening each of the three boxes, the couple were stunned and bemused by the boxes contents. Each box measured 15cm in height x 19cm in width x 29cm in length, so each individual box is large enough to contain 6 x 500ml bottles.

So, what did each box contain?  Well the first box is shown here on the left contained 3 x 200ml bottles of dietary supplement, the second box being shown here in the middle contained 2 x 100ml of dietary supplement and the third box being shown here on the right contained, contained  ONE SINGLE SHEET of an A4 sized information pamphlet  on the contents of the other two boxes. You might notice each individual box says, “FRAGILE” including the one containing the ONE SINGLE SHEET OF A4!!!!!!

In essences, 800 ml of the supplementary dietary trial samples and one single A4 information pamphlet were packed and dispatched for delivery in packaging more suited and designed to contain NINE LITRES, more than 9 times greater than 800ml plus one A4 information pamphlet!!   Did somebody say something about over expenditure by the HSE, who presumably are paying somebody for this kind of wasteful and exploitative behaviour by some private companies dealing with the HSE? One is also given to wondering how our environmentally concerned groups view this wanton waste of resources?
