Major Cath Lab Protest Planned

Thousands Expected to Walk on Dáil Over Cath Lab Failure

The South East Patient Advocacy Group have responded to a call from the family of the late Thomas Power, who passed away on 18th June to organise a protest for Tuesday, 4th July at 1.00 p.m. outside Dail Eireann. Thomas passed away while being transferred to Cork after suffering from a heart attack on a Sunday morning. The cath lab at Waterford

University Hospital was closed at the time as it only operates between the hours of 915pm Monday-Friday.

SEPAG is calling upon the people from across the entire South East region to come to Dublin next Tuesday 4th July and converge outside the Dáil at 1pm.

Speaking after the announcement Hilary O’Neill of SEPAG said “Our protest at the Dáil for the 4th July will once again seek to highlight that patients’ lives are at risk and that we will not tolerate any more unnecessary loss of life. How many more people are going to be allowed to die before this Government will grant us equal 24/7 cardiac services in the South East.”

SEPAG fully support the Power family in calling for the immediate implementation of 24/7 cardiac care to be put in place in UHW.

Hilary O’Neill and Yvonne Cooney both stated that the campaign by SEPAG and the people of the South East will continue until a 24/7 cardiac care service is in place and are urging as many people as possible to come to Dublin on Tuesday to show their support for the Power family as the next death could be a member of any of our families.
