Mc Garvey says more public hospital beds are needed in Letterkenny

Cllr Ian Mc Garvey says he raised this during a conversation with Health Minister Leo Varadkar in Donegal last week.

He also pressed the minister on the pressures being felt by many elderly people as a result of the medical card review.
