Restore full mammography service - Martin Kenny TD

19 August, 2016 - by Martin Kenny TD


Martin Kenny TD has described the suggestion that the HSE will provide a mobile mammography service at Sligo University Hospital for 10 days per year as an insult to cancer patients in the North West.

Deputy Kenny said;

“It is unbelievable how the HSE could even contemplate this as being an adequate service for breast cancer patients. It is a disgraceful response to the Sligo Cancer Campaign’s call for the restoration of mammography service in Sligo University Hospital.

“Fine Gael promised to restore a full mammography service before the general election.  We are well used to Fine Gael election promises been broken when it comes to health care in this country.  This however is an insult to cancer patients in the North West.

“What we need and what we deserve is the full restoration of the mammography service that is adequately staffed to meet the needs of patients in this region not this pretence designed to give cover for past promises.”
