Disgraceful Shame on the local labour/fine Gael TDs for allowing this to happen !again it’s takes Padraig and pearse to dig deep and reveal these figures !!? how come our local government TDS are not telling us this news are they to busy on holiday or again turning their backs on real issues affecting our local hosptl and the life’s of Donegal people ! ?? Minister o Reilly out now !!
I am not surprised at this scandal. I rang the hospital and was told that there were no admin staff at the ENT section since May until a couple of weeks ago. This is outrageous!! I met my consultant in May and this means that his recommendation has not been seen by anyone until a few weeks ago. How many other patients have not had their recommendations seen by anyone? Thousands?? This health system is a disgrace!!!
Donegal Action for Cancer Care have highlighted the serious differences in budget allocation for Letterkenny Hospital for a considerable time. DACC at our meeting with Donegal Oireacthats Members on the 23rd June 2011 showing differencres between LGH & Sligo. At that meeting we gave the budget figure for 2009, 2010 & 2011. We also have continued to highlight these inequalties and have talked to Minister O’ Reilly re LGH becoming a Regional Hospital, indeed DACC first raised this mattrer back September 2009. LGH has a HSE has a Model 3 Agreement which under no 6 of the Characteristics states”There will streaming to appropriate speciality units/ wards as per protocols” Surely the Gynae Ward at LGH is protected under this?
If there is a gaa match it will attract 20,000 people at least.
If there is a protest march for cuts at our hospital, you might get 4 or 5,000 people.
Whats wrong with this picture?
Wake up people – these cuts are only the beginning.
