Cope calls for investment in LUH after surprise ministerial visit


Health Minister Simon Harris is being urged to take immediate action to ease the pressures on Letterkenny University Hospital, after he made an unannounced visit to the hospital yesterday along with the Director General of the HSE Tony O'Brien.

Donegal TD Pat The Cope Gallagher says there are growing pressures at the hospital on a daily basis due to budget constraints and staff shortages, and the minister must have seen that during his visit

He says the dedication of staff to the care of the patients is not in question, but their task is impossible unless additional resources are provided by Minister Harris and the HSE.........
