Grealish rubbishes Government response to moving UHG services to Merlin Park

Wed, Apr 26, 2017

Government "dodging the issue" of moving services from UHG to Merlin Park to solve overcrowding at the UHG Emergency Department is "unhelpful" and "the people of Galway and the west of Ireland deserve better."

This is the view of Independent Galway West TD Noel Grealish who has condemned the Government's attitude to solving overcrowding at the Emergency Department of UHG - despite An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, indicating support for the idea of moving services from UHG to Merlin Park.

Dep Grealish also expressed disappointment with a response he received from Health Minister Simon Harris in response to a Dáil question regarding "precise details" on a timeframe for when services might be moved. "
