Minister of State John Halligan TD has accused senior health officials of ‘putting every obstacle possible in front of the expansion of cardiac services at UHW’ – including ignoring a direct order from Minister for Health Simon Harris to procure a mobile cath lab to tackle waiting lists in the region.

And he has urged Minister Harris to ‘get to the bottom of this interference’ ahead of a second review later this year.

In the Dáil this (Wednesday) afternoon during a Topical Issues debate on the death by cardiac arrest of Waterford man Thomas Power in the back of an ambulance last Sunday, Minister Halligan confirmed that a mobile cath lab will be deployed to UHW in September for 20 months, during which its usage will be monitored to feed into a new clinical review on the need to expand cardiac services.

The Society has rescheduled the Heritage Walk that was to be held on Wednesday 7 June and was postponed due to weather. It will now take place on Wednesday 28 June with a starting time of 7.15 pm. This will be the first of the Society’s Summer Heritage Walks. The walk will commence from the Passage East Community Centre and will take a route to Crooke and return to Passage East. This route has a rich heritage as it was used by several English Kings for their landing in Ireland. The Knights Templars also had a base at Crooke. This is not just a very interesting walk but a staggeringly beautiful one too.

Waterford had a hugely successful and wonderful Daffodil Day on Friday March 24 th when we raised approximately €75,000 which was €7,000 up on what was achieved last

Cullinane continued “A national review of cardiac care is being commissioned by the Minister for Health to establish whether to cease all emergency cardiac services in the region. This is on foot of the Herity Report which proposes to cease all Primary PCI at UHW.

“This recommendation has caused shock and disbelief in the region and must be challenged.

“Local clinicians have challenged the Herity Report on a number of grounds including existing national and regional policy, the role and status of the hospital as a regional service provider, basing population catchment areas on need and not on current limited capacity, distance to other hospitals, patient safety, and risk analysis.

“In this context, I have submitted my document to the Department and put forward terms of reference proposing that a national review:
