Waterford Cardiac Care Crisis needs to be addressed now, not later – Cullinane

22 June, 2017 - by David Cullinane TD


Sinn Féin TD for Waterford David Cullinane announced today that he will be hosting a presentation in Dáil Éireann on the Waterford cardiac care crisis on Tuesday 4th July. 

Deputy Cullinane said:

“This is an opportunity for Oireachtas members from all parties to hear directly from experts. 

“Representatives of the family of Thomas Power will address the meeting. It will also be addressed by regional clinicians and campaign groups.

“The Minister has said a further review will only take place once a mobile lab has been deployed and has run its course.

“This is kicking the can down the road.

“It will not be in place for four months. This means that the next review will not take place until next February at the earliest.

“The Government and the Minister need to understand the urgency of this issue.

“The presentation on 4th July is an opportunity for the minister and Oireachtas members to hear directly from the professionals on the ground and the families who have suffered as a result of the current failed policy.”
