David Cullinane, Sinn Féin TD for Waterford, said that the HSE has questions to answer over primary PCI at University Hospital Waterford and its refusal to accept the reality of the South East population figures and travel times to Cork.

Deputy Cullinane said:

"First of all, let me convey my condolences to the family of Thomas Power, a young man who died in an ambulance on the way to Cork because the cardiac unit in Waterford was closed.

"It is sad and shocking but unfortunately we knew that something like this was going to happen once the HSE took the decision to effectively shelve the Higgins Report and treat Waterford as an adjunct of Cork.

"Half a million people are not an adjunct.

"The sleight of hand and playing with numbers that we saw with the Herity Report was always going to cost lives.

"We need to go back to the Higgins Report and implement its findings.

"University Hospital Waterford needs to be treated by the HSE as a regional hospital.

"The present plan to have it as a general hospital simply doesn't make sense from a clinical and regional point of view.

"I will continue to fight to have the Higgins Report put in place and for Waterford and the South East to be given the resources it needs to sustain and grow as a region."
