Details of payments to company owned by ex-health board chief

Documents obtained by the Irish Examiner newspaper show that the chairman of the state’s implementation body for health sector reform, Mr Pat Harvey, has received over €1 million in severance fees, non-tendered projects and other payouts since retiring from the health service.
State money
The documents, which the HSE initially refused to release, show Mr Harvey has received the money since 2005. He now oversees a group tasked with saving the state money.
The retired civil servant is a former chair of the defunct HSE Employers Agency (HSE EA); chief executive of the North Western Health Board (now HSE North West); chair of the PPARS (personnel, payroll and related systems) project; and former general manager of Sligo and Letterkenny hospitals.
