Board of Crumlin Children's Hospital denies charity the source of CEO's wage

The board of Crumlin Children's Hospital has said that no charity donations have been used to pay it's CEO.

In a statement the board said that it is aware of the concern caused by the 'top-ups' controversy - but while an extra allowance was paid to their Chief Executive, it was funded from commercial activities at the facility.

The HSE is currently asking hospitals tough questions after a review found top-ups were being used to flout the goverment's rules on pay, and boost funds for senior staff.
