Siptu to host public meeting on health in Letterkenny

The future of Letterkenny General Hospital and the health service in Donegal is the subject of a public meeting being hosted by Siptu in the Mount Errigal Hotel this evening.

The union says cutbacks in the hospital's funding and the outsourcing of some services including the shop are causes for concern, as is the moratorium on recruitment.

Health sector spokesperson Declan Ferry says tonight's meeting, part of a national series of public rallies is intended to build up a picture of how HSE staff and members of the public want to shape health service provision in the county..........
