Climbdown highlights chaotic management of health services

4 September, 2012 - by Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD

Commenting on the decision to reverse the proposed cuts to personal assistance for disabled people, Sinn Féin Health spokesperson Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD said: 

“The reversal of the threatened cuts to personal assistance services for the disabled is welcome but such cuts should never have been contemplated in the first place.

“This climbdown in the space of less than a week highlights the chaotic management of the health services under Health Minister Reilly and his Fine Gael/Labour Coalition colleagues.

“The whole €130 million cuts package, including cuts to home help and home care services, should also be reversed.”
