Mulranny doctor says no ambulance service in Mayo last night

Prominent Mulranny GP Dr Jerry Cowley has released a statement to media this morning (Friday ) saying there was no ambulance cover in Mayo last night.

He said three ambulances on duty in the county, two in Castlebar and one in Ballina, were all diverted out of Mayo to deal with emergency cases.

“Clearly the deficient ambulance service is the result of savage cuts to the HSE who do not have sufficient funds to service the needs of the good people of Mayo,” said Dr. Cowley.

He is calling on An Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Minister of State Michael Ring to “do their job and provide the finance the HSE requires to staff Mulranny [ambulance base], and provide the resources for additional ambulances in the county, both day and night.”
