Cuts will devastate Waterford Hospital – Cullinane

24 January, 2012

Sinn Féin Waterford Senator David Cullinane has hit out at the cuts contained in a leaked report from the HSE which makes proposals, among others, to close three of the eight operating theatres at Waterford Regional Hospital.

Senator Cullinane said:

“The cuts contained in this leaked document will be devastating for the people of Waterford and surrounding areas. Proposals by the HSE to close operating theatres, a surgical ward, four paediatric in-patient beds and one intensive care bed will be disastrous.

“These savage cuts must not be allowed to go ahead. I am calling on all Oireachtas members in this region to press Minister Reilly to prevent the implementation of this plan for the devastation of our hospital.”
