- PQ on Edenderry Ambulance Service (151 KB)
Commenting in relation to a parliamentary question response from the HSE today, Sinn Féin TD for Offaly and North Tipperary, Deputy Carol Nolan, has cautiously welcomed confirmation that the HSE has submitted a planning application for the construction of a new ambulance station at Edenderry this week.
Deputy Nolan said:
“I would like to commend my party colleague, Cllr Martin O’Reilly for his Trojan work on this issue on behalf of the community.
“The removal of the ambulance crew stationed in Edenderry to Tullamore in recent times is an issue of huge concern to the local community.
“I welcome the fact that the HSE has submitted a planning application to allow for the construction of a new building and I hope that these works will continue in a timely fashion without undue delay.
“The provision of adequate ambulance services to the town of Edenderry is essential and we will continue to keep the pressure on relevant officials within the HSE and the National Ambulance service until this issue is resolved fully.
“I call on the HSE and the National Ambulance Service to redouble their efforts to source suitable alternative temporary accommodation until the new station is constructed so that the ambulance crew may be re-established in Edenderry as soon as possible.” ENDS
