The number of highly paid HSE managers has soared by almost 30 per cent since 2012 at a time when the health budget has come under severe pressure.

In 2012, there were 659 staff in top-earning management grades. That increased to 838 this year, new figures seen by The Sunday Business Post show.

HSE national directors, the very top management tier, can earn up to €147,000.
