Letterkenny General Manager suprised at Deputy McHugh’s announcement

The manager of Letterkenny General Hospital has said that the announcement by Deputy Joe McHugh that a new rapid Access Prostate Cancer Clinic will open at Letterkenny General in three weeks, was a little early.

Sean Murphy says that while he expects the unit to open on November the 4th, negotiations to provide the service are still on going.
