Buncrana Town Council backed a motion by Cllr Mary Kelly.
Cllr Kelly made the call after a number of constituents claimed they could not understand doctors at various medical facilities locally.
Cllr Kelly told Donegal Daily the situation is becoming so serious that she fears a patient will be misdiagnosed if something is not done.
“I raised the issue because I fear it is a genuine cause for concern and it is only getting worse.
“A number of people have come to me with various incidents and expressed their concern.
“People are embarrassed if they cannot understand a doctor and they simply agree with them in the end and that is a dangerous thing.
“I do fear that there will be a misdiagnosis if something is not done,” she said.
