Blaney calls for clarity on opening date for new Emergency Department

The HSE is being urged to make a definitive statement on when the long awaited new bloc at Letterkenny General Hospital will be operational.

Donegal Cllr Liam Blaney, a member of the HSE West Regional Forum, raised the issue of the new Emergency Department and Medical Assessment Unit at a meeting in Galway this week, to be told that the building would be commissioned and ready for use by July.

However, he says that's only half the story, and making arrangements to staff the new building is going to delay its opening even further...........
