The clinical care of cardiac patients in the South East is the immediate responsibility of their GPs and consultants in this region. We, the hospital consultants in Waterford, Wexford and South Tipperary, note the unanimous views of these hospitals' Cardiologists, expressed in these pages and elsewhere in the media, that the needs of the population are not being met in this regard.

We fully support the sentiments expressed by 245 GP colleagues in the South East (Letters, Irish Times, Saturday, February 11th), that echoes this view. Furthermore, we understand and fully support the sentiments expressed by the people of the South East, who have felt the need to publicly protest to have their concerns heard.

It is with great concern for the welfare of cardiac patients in the South East that we add our voices. It is clear that there is a

Many of us often neglect our feet, and the vast majority of people will have dry skin or some other issue which needs attention. Some of the more common issues which are queried in the pharmacy are listed below along with brief advice as to the best treatments available. So why not treat your feet before the summer – your feet will thank you for it!

A moist environment alone does not cause athlete's foot - but warm moist conditions provide favourable conditions for the

“A cost benefit analysis of the project is to commence within the next two to three weeks and, within about two months, Waterford Council will have a clearer picture of the financial commitment required from Government to make this badly-needed proposition a reality.

A decision to open the doors of the Green Party convention to all-comers with a series of public events this past weekend has proved very successful, TD and Green Party leader Eamon Ryan said today:

“We held three events specifically open to all. They were well attended and the reaction has been hugely positive. The Peter Willcox public interview was amazingly well received. Peter is based in the States, so for us, as a small party, it was a big budget decision to bring him over. It was absolutely the right call. This man is a living example of how we can instigate change in the world. The stories he shared about his brave dedication to environmental activism were moving and inspiring.”

Waterford Senator Grace O’Sullivan, who was instrumental in bringing the convention to Waterford said she couldn’t be happier with how

Sinn Fein Deputy David Cullinane has raised the Corporate governance of Waterford Institute of Technology at last week’s meeting of the Public Accounts Committee.

Sinn Fein TD for Waterford David Cullinane said that the HSE and Tony O'Brien continue to obfuscate when dealing with the Public Accounts Committee and patience is running out.

Deputy Cullinane said “Last year, Tony O'Brien was asked by the Public Accounts Committee whether people involved with the Grace case still worked in the public service and yesterday, after thirteen months, we finally got an answer. Two of the people involved are currently working with the child agency, Tusla.

“Mr O’Brien also admitted that the decision not to publish the report in 2012 or 2013 was an internal HSE decision. It was only in April 2015 that an Garda Síochána wrote to the HSE to request they hold off on publication.

“Yesterday, I found Mr O'Brien to be a frustrating and hostile witness.
