Huge Problems In The Health Service Still Not Being Tackled

By November 18, 2015No Comments

During a debate in the Dail on Wednesday evening last I outlined the many problems that we have in our health service at the moment and the problems that I outlined seem to be getting worse. I have highlighted the problems we have with A and E departments, waiting lists, the shortage of GP’s and the wait for operations so many times in the past. I also outlined the extreme frustration that exists in dealing with the HSE and the Minister. When you write to the Minister with a problem he says that he is not responsible and he refers the complaint on to the HSE. Then when you raise the matters with the HSE you get the same letter back every time with the same words and it might just be signed by a different person. As a public representative I am sick and tired of it and it is just not good enough. The situation as it exists just cannot be allowed to continue. Someone has to stand up and take ownership of these problems and sort them out. If the weather gets very bad over the next couple of months then we are heading for even more chaos, if that was possible.
