DACC seek meeting with Health Minister and HSE boss

The Accident and Emergency department at Roscommon County Hospital will be replaced with an urgent care unit from today.

It's a move that's been condemned by local campaigners, and protests against the move are due to be held at a number of other hospitals across the country.

Meanwhile, local campaign group Donegal Action for Cancer Care is seeking a meeting with Health Minister Dr James Reilly and HSE Chief Executive Cathal Magee amid suggestions that an audit of A&E in Letterkenny cold see opening hours reduced.

The group says that meeting should take place in Donegal so that interested parties can attend.
