Adopting a Frame Analysis approach, this research examines the representation of the Irish Health Service Executive (HSE) and its employees in the Irish flagship daily newspaper, the Irish Independent. It finds that coverage of the HSE is constructed in a predominantly episodic and negative manner, characterised by sensationalist headlines and inflammatory content. Moreover, this research indicates that the 'framing' of the HSE is reflective of the editorial ethos of the Independent News and Media Group.
