After the meeting with the HSE this morning, Fine Gael’s Dr. Liam Twomey said that there was no clear indication from the HSE that it still fully understands the importance of the A & E Department at Wexford General Hospital for the people of Wexford.
“Concerns were raised by both the HSE and Dr. Colm Quigley about manpower issues for the hospital that relate to the European Working Time Directive. They also discussed the transfer of services from Wexford General Hospital to Waterford Regional Hospital. The HSE did give an undertaking that they would come back to the Oireachtas members before the final report was published but there is still a need for the people of Wexford to remain vigilant and for that reason, I fully support the people of Wexford having another public meeting. “
Dr. Twomey added “The politicians had their say at the last meeting. This time the doctors, nurses, admin staff, patient representatives and other health care staff should do the talking at the podium on this occasion. I am willing to make my contribution towards paying for the logistics in organising this meeting that includes room hire, advertising, posters etc. I hope that all politicians and political parties will support this stand because we must all work together to ensure that the HSE is clear about our message of how important our hospital is to all of us in County Wexford.”
