DUNGLOE HOSPITAL ANTE-NATAL CLINIC CLOSED

first_imgIndependent TD Thomas Pringle and his council colleague Cllr Michael Cholm MacGiollaEaspuig have today slammed the Letterkenny General Hospital closure of the antenatal clinic in Dungloe Community Hospital. ‘This is a huge blow to west Donegal that heaps added pressure on mothers and their partners forcing them to travel to Letterkenny for clinics that up to now have been provided locally,” said Pringle.“Expectant parents will have added cost of travel and could have to rely on patchy public transport to access these vital clinics. It is totally unacceptable that the hospital should close this clinic’ said MacGiollaEaspuig. “For Letterkenny General Hospital to withdraw this clinic is a disgrace and they should immediately reinstate it now’ said Pringle. ‘This decision calls into question the future of antenatal clinics around the county and Letterkenny General Hospital need to clarify now what their intentions are’ concluded Pringle. DUNGLOE HOSPITAL ANTE-NATAL CLINIC CLOSED was last modified: January 9th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:dungloehospitalpringlelast_img read more
