“People in Navan and across Meath are astonished at the mess the government and HSE are making of the current health crisis. The changes to the ambulance arrangements for Navan are now affecting hospital services in Drogheda and Mullinga Anton McCabe of the Navan Branch of the Labour Party has told Meath Live.
He was calling for a huge turnout for the day of action against hospital cutbacks and the crisis in accident and emergency services due to take place nationwide on 21st January. He called on Navan and Meath people to send the strongest possible signal to the government and the HSE by turning out in force 21st January.
“We are calling for a huge Navan turnout at 1.00 pm at Our Lady’s Hospital to show the government and the HSE that they can’t just keep on running down our essential health services.”
“What started as a Meath problem has now infected hospital services in Drogheda and Mullingar. People are completely fed up with what the government and the HSE are doing.”
“It is abundantly clear that neither the general public nor medical experts believe that the government and the HSE are adequately resourcing our hospitals, including our accident and emergency services.”
“We need yet another strong statement from the people of Meath that they will not tolerate the closure of their hospital or a radical downgrading of its services either’’, he said.
