A Donegal TD is calling on Health Minister Leo Varadkar and management at the Saolta Hospital Group to ensure that a second permanent, full-time endocrinologist team is appointed to Letterkenny General Hospital.

Deputy Padraig Mac Lochlainn says the waiting list for diabetes type 1 patients at the hospital can now be as long as 26 months, a situation he says is unacceptable.

He recently submitted a parliamentary question to the minister, but it was referred to management at the hospital.

Deputy Mac Lochlainn says he received a reply, but his question was not answered.........
