Up to five thousand people participated in the march for 24/7 Cardiac Care in University Hospital, Waterford on Saturday afternoon last. The march was proof positive that this is a major political issue in Waterford and the South East and it would indeed be a foolish politician who does not take on board the very strong feelings the electorate has on this crucial health service.

In a statement issued after the public meeting, Hilary O’Neill, spokesperson for the South East Patients Advocary Group said; “Firstly on behalf of the South East Patient Advocacy Group we would like to thank everybody who came out on the 14th January 2017 to demand 24/7 cardiac care at UHW. We would especially like to thank John Tobin and Tom O'Dwyer who both shared their harrowing stories

Must not distract from campaign for 24/7 Service

Fianna Fáil TD for Waterford, Mary Butler has said that while she welcomes the announcement of a potential mobile cath lab at University Hospital Waterford, the people of Waterford have heard similar promises before, and will only believe it when it’s on the ground.

“Anything that can help reduce waiting lists is very welcome, the devil will be in the detail, and Minister Halligan, must now ensure that full details are released as quickly as possible.

“Earlier this week, it was clear that funding for this mobile cath service was not included in the 2017 HSE Service Plan. The hospital management need to know what procedures will be performed; where will it be located; how the service will be funded; where the additional staff will be sourced from; what the operating hours will be, and

This week Fianna Fail Councillor Eamon Quinlan has revealed, following research with Waterford Council’s Housing department that there are currently four times the number of beds available for men in need of Emergency Accommodation then Women. These take the form of

Current figures place the number of beds in Men’s only Hostels at over 40 while beds for Women stand at 4 with an additional 6 held in reserve if needed. Ad hoc measures such as renting B&B’s are sometimes used by the Council but this is mainly to keep families with small children together.

Speaking on this issue Cllr Quinlan said ‘These are really shocking numbers and place women in a terribly vulnerable position. Homelessness can strike anyone regardless of gender, they are under the same financial pressures
