Lobbying

Mobile cath lab at University Hospital Waterford

Independent Minister of State John Halligan TD has confirmed this afternoon that the mobile cath lab is scheduled to arrive at University Hospital Waterford on Sunday, 24th September.

Reacting to the news, Waterford Chamber CEO Gerald Hurley said: “We welcome the news that the arrival of the cath lab has been confirmed and within two weeks the hospital will be in a position to cater for in the region of 30-45 patients requiring Diagnostic Coronary Angiography per week. However there are reservations regarding a 20-week contract that is limited to dealing with the historical list solely.

It is important to stress that this is not 24/7 cardiac care or the expanded service that is required. It may be a step in the right direction, but it certainly is not enough and we will continue to lobby on behalf of our members to ensure the required level of cardiac care service is implemented in University Hospital Waterford.”
