letterkenny university hospital

A Donegal Deputy is calling on the Health Minister to ring fence extra funding for the HSE in order to solve issues in Letterkenny University Hospital.

€40 million euro is being allocated across the country as part of the Winter Initiative announced last week.

However Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher says when divided, the extra money may not be enough to tackle the wide ranging problems affecting Letterkenny Hospital.

He wants Minister Simon Harris to take an interest following his unannounced visit to the hospital last week..........
