13 HSE consultants receive retirement lump sums of at least €300,000

Two HSE consultants have received retirement lump sums of over €400,000 this year.

A further 11 got at least €300,000, according to freedom of information documents.

The highest amount was nearly €420,000, which was paid to a radiologist.

Beaumont Hospital consultant, Bill Tormey, says it’s over-the-top.

“Excessive is the only word I could say, mad or excessive.

“You could buy a fairly decent sized house with that, in a posh area.

“I think it’s very very high as an exit at the end of the day.

“It’s not as if the lump sum isn’t accompanied by a pension which is half pay – and that’s paid out to people who are basically debt free.”
