Kenny challenged on hospital bed closures

Sinn Féin Health spokesperson, Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin, has challenged Taoiseach Enda Kenny on the proposed closure of 59 hospital beds in Mayo, including six in Swinford District Hospital where the Taoiseach, a Mayo TD, opened new facilities in July.

“These closures will hit patient care in Co Mayo, especially the care of older people,” Deputy Ó Caoláin said. “I challenge Enda Kenny to intervene to prevent the bed closures and to lift the recruitment embargo which is crippling the health services throughout the State.”
