Rally in suppport of Lifford Hospital planned for May 17th

A march and rally which was to have taken place in support of Lifford Hospital next Tuesday has been put back until the 17th of May.

The event is being organised by the Friends of Lifford Hospital, who are seeking commitments from the HSE that the hospital won't close as a result of an ongoing review. The HSE's Local Health Manager for Donegal John Hayes says the review ias continuing, with results expected in early summer.

Sylvester Mc Gee is Secretary of the Friends of Lifford Hospital. He says the biggest problem is the lack of clarity.
