There has been a deterioration in the accessibility of private healthcare in Cork relative to other parts of the country, according to a report by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).

People paying for health insurance in the south of the country are also subsidising members in Galway and Dublin, the report concluded.

The PwC assessment said Cork had 1.33 hospital beds for every 1,000 insured people, compared with 2.16 in Dublin and 2.58 in Galway.
