Discussion and debate with Joe Duffy


Liveline callers tell Joe about their experiences of Irish hospitals.  Jenny's mother was in hospital and Jenny found she had to fight for everything on behalf of her mother.  She tells Joe the staff were very territorial - you were on their turf and felt you couldn't ask questions.

Bernard talks about technology giving an unfair advantage to players in competitions.

Patrick was a heroin addict for 4 years with an €800 a week habit.  He tells Joe he's 5 years clean now.
