Ministers have been warned that GPs may use Government promises to introduce abortion services by next year as a negotiating ploy to seek “significant” fees for carrying out terminations.
The Irish Medical Organisation (IMO) has in the past used deadlines to introduce new services by a specific date to seek much higher fees from the State, the Cabinet has been told.
