21 September, 2021 - by Pa Daly TD

Sinn Féin TD for Kerry, Pa Daly, has said questions remain for the South/South West Hospital Group on UHK cancelled surgeries.

Teachta Daly said: 

“Almost three weeks on from the news that elective surgeries were cancelled in UHK due to overcrowding, I am informed that surgeries remain cancelled with the exception of time-critical cancer operations.

“Having been contacted by people working in the hospital, and asking for details for any credible plan to address the problem, I am still awaiting answers. 

“I have asked the CEO of the South/South West Hospital Group for a reply, and I am awaiting a reply from either the CEO or the management in UHK.

“I have also raised a number of questions regarding plans to resume surgeries, address staffing issues and the status of UHK as a Model 3 hospital to Stephen Donnelly.

“The people of Kerry deserve answers to these questions urgently.”
