Donegal cancer and dialysis patients to lose ambulance service?

Sinn Fein claims to have a document which shows that Ambulance Services for Cancer and Dialysis patients on the western seaboard will no longer be available from the end of this month.

The issue was raised in the Dail by Deputy Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin who expressed his anger that the Health Minister would not be available until early July to answer his questions in the Dail.

Deputy O'Caolain said the withdrawal of the ambulance service was a very serious matter which should be discussed immediately:
