“The Audit and Quality Assurance team are responsible for auditing the waiting lists of all public hospitals. The Quality Assurance team have a requirement to spend up to a week at a time in a public hospital and therefore the payment of subsistence is required. The NTPF complies fully with Department of Public Expenditure and Reform guidelines with regard to the payment of expenses.”
