DACC CONTINUE TO EXPRESS FEARS OVER BREAST CANCER SERVICES

first_imgDonegal Action Against Cancer Care has again highlighted its fears over the breast cancer unit at Letterkenny General Hospital.Betty Holmes of DACC.While a follow up meeting has been confirmed for 20th August at the Dept. of Health in Dublin, DACC continue to highlight their concerns.The centralisation of the referral process of appointments for people who are referred to the Breast Unit are now made through the Lead Breast Surgeon at Galway University Hospital.This means that all appointments for the Breast Unit at Letterkenny Hospital were made on a daily basis at LGH for almost 10 years.Now all requests for appointments to the Breast Unit must now be forwarded to Galway University Hospital on a daily basis and the appointments are made twice weekly for these patients by the Lead Breast Surgeon in Galway.A spokesperson for DACC said “We in DACC are being told by Saolta that this referral process is working well…how can it? And who decides it is? The Breast Unit at Letterkenny Hospital was allocating its own appointments for patients for approx. ten years now we have decisions on appointments made twice weekly by Galway.“We feel that there is little awareness by people of what this will mean for the Breast Unit at Letterkenny Hospital. What is wrong with Letterkenny’s Breast Unit Breast Surgeon allocating appointments for Donegal patient’s? Is the Breast Surgeon at Letterkenny being forced into a position where he will leave, we in DACC ask? This is the first step in downgrading the Breast Unit and if we the people don’t get involved the Breast Unit will be taken away and we will see everyone having to travel to Galway by the end of 2017 or earlier. Is this what the people and more importantly Donegal breast cancer patients want & need? If you think it can’t or won’t happen remember that Letterkenny Hospital was a leader in Ireland with their Prostate Cancer Services for 20 years which were removed to Galway as part of the Rapid Access Clinics. Now we have bus loads of men heading down the road to Galway Hospital for a service that should have bene retained at Letterkenny Hospital” says Betty Holmes DACC.She continued “It is 308 KM one way from Malin to Galway. Why was this massive change made by Saolta? Is this in the best interest of the Breast Cancer Patient and the Breast Unit? Is this Medical Politics? Remember the administrative staff at the Breast Unit must now daily spend what we imagine must be two or three hours sending all the appointments requests to Galway Hospital. How does this impact on their daily working day?“Commitments were given at the meeting in the Dept. of Health on the 27th Feb that Galway Breast Consultants would travel to Letterkenny Hospital ¾ days per month. This hasn’t happened. One consultant who has been a supporter of the Breast Unit continues to come up. Where are the other four Consultants? Why have they not been up? Remember we in DACC believe each Breast Surgeon should have 50 new Breast Cancers , have the 5 consultants in Galway this number each? The Dept of Health, the HSE & Saolta keep telling Donegal Action for Cancer Care that the Breast Cancer Services at Letterkenny Hospital are safe & secure. We ask them as we have done where will they all be at the end of 2017 or sooner when the services are removed? Still in their jobs no doubt!DACC CONTINUE TO EXPRESS FEARS OVER BREAST CANCER SERVICES was last modified: July 18th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Betty HolmesdonegalDonegal Action Against Cancer Carelast_img read more

Doherty Expresses Solidarity with students caught up in Galway rent controversy

first_imgDeputy Pearse Doherty has expressed solidarity with the students set to be affected by the unexpected announcement by management of student accommodation provider Cúirt na Coiribe in Galway that it intends to increase rents for the forthcoming academic year by up to €1,000.According to NUI Galway Students’ Union, residents were informed of the move last Friday in an email advising tenants of the planned increases.It is further claimed that in the same email students have been advised that priority booking for September will be considered for current tenants following payment of a deposit which is needed to secure a place for next year. Expressing his support for the students, Deputy Pearse Doherty said:“Over the weekend, representatives from NUIG Students’ Union have contacted Sinn Féin to draw attention to the current situation facing students trying to secure accommodation at the student complex Cúirt na Coiribe for the upcoming academic year.“It’s claimed that management of the privately owned facility emailed its tenants last week to inform them of plans to increase rental costs by €1,000 for accommodation for this coming September, while also advising them that advanced bookings will be taken for those who are in a position to pay a deposit to secure a place there when bookings commence this week.“The Union claims that this represents a increase of 18 per cent in rents compared to what students were charged for accommodation at the same complex for the duration of the current academic year 17/18. “Understandably, students are rightly very upset and annoyed that this news has been sprung on them at a time when many of them are preparing to sit either end of year exams, while those who are preparing to come to college next year are preparing to sit their Leaving Cert in just a few weeks’ time.”He added that this is obviously a matter which affects a lot of students and their families here in Donegal where huge numbers of students travel to Galway every year to attend University there and to reside in the city throughout term time.“Available accommodation in the city is already stretched to capacity, and this unexpected increase at Cúirt na Coiribe is yet another example of private accommodation providers taking advantage of the ongoing housing and accommodation crisis to feather their own nests, all at the expense of hard-pressed students and their families.“Over the weekend, my colleague and Sinn Féin Housing Spokesperson Deputy Eoin Ó Broin has been in touch with a number of students affected and has advised students and college representatives to formally take their case to the Residential Tenancies Board with the view to testing the current laws in this area.“Furthermore, our party has recently introduced the Residential Tenancies (Student Rents, Rights & Protection) Bill which, if enacted, will seek to provide the necessary protections to students in relation to accommodation and their rights as tenants with the party hoping to have this important piece of legislation voted on in the Dáil before the upcoming summer recess. “Clearly, these students are just another group in the long list of all those who have been failed by successive governments to afford tenants and renters the appropriate level of protection when renting.“For our part, my party is standing in solidarity with the students affected by this latest announcement and we will continue to support them in their campaign urging the company to rethink its current position in relation to these planned rent increases.”Doherty Expresses Solidarity with students caught up in Galway rent controversy was last modified: May 10th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
