HSE intend to commission new LGH unit this year

 

A commitment has been gioven that the new Emergency Department at Letterkenny General Hospital will open this year.

Oireachtas members and other Donegal public representitives in Donegal have had a five hour meeting with the HSE's service manager in Donegal today.

The meeting with John Hayes saw the representitives briefed on the financial constraints facing the HSE and the plans for service provision in the county.

Donegal North East Deputy Padraig Mac Lochlainnn says there wasn't a lot to inspire hope, but one piece of good news was that the new building at Letterkenny General is practically finished and the focus now is to commission it as quickly as possible........
