    The HSE is coming down with goals, mission statements, strategies and slogans of every type.

    It suffers from a lack of management. It needs competent management with full support.

    Support from politicians, support from staff and unions and with adequate legal and regulatory authority to manage.

    I agree. An organisation, of any size, should only have one mission statement or set of goals. It should be no more than a paragraph. It should be simple and clear and it should define the reason for the existence of the organisation. It should then be referenced during every decision making process. It should inform you when you are defining what "lack of management" means and what "Support from politicians, support from staff and unions and with adequate legal and regulatory authority to manage" means. In other words when you say it needs support from politicians, staff and unions it should make clear the nature of the required support and to what ends those involved are working towards.
    Taking €300,000,000 out of the clinical budget of the HSE to fund pay increases should not be aligned to the overall goals of the organisation but retaining staff and keeping them happy should.
