5,000 PEOPLE WAITING MORE THAN A YEAR FOR OUTPATIENT APPOINTMENT AT HOSPITAL

first_imgHEALTH SHOCKER: ALMOST 5,000 people are now waiting more than a year for an outpatient appointment at Letterkenny General Hospital, figures released by the HSE have revealed.Letterkenny General HospitalThe figures mark a staggering 411% increase in waiting list figures over the past year.Reacting to the shocking figures, Deputy Charlie McConalogue said the statistics should sound alarm bells across Donegal. He said “The huge increases in waiting list times are nothing short of alarming. This Government promised that no patient would be forced to wait more than 8 months for treatment, but 4 years later that target has been well and truly obliterated. In February there were 4,947 people waiting more than a year for scheduled procedures at Letterkenny General Hospital. This is completely unacceptable.“There has been a rapid deterioration in the situation over the past 12 months and it begs the question – where will these waiting lists be this time next year? The health system is becoming more and more dysfunctional and there appears to be no end in sight. Health Minister Leo Varadkar cannot continue to act like an impartial bystander, commenting on a worsening situation without doing anything about it.”He said it is now time for a radical rethink of how the health system is managed.“This Government has presided over a cull of community hospital beds, the closure of hospital wards, a slash and burn of health resources, gross mismanagement of the health budget over successive years and the downgrading of hospital services in different parts of the country. All of this has pushed more and more patients into the already overburdened hospitals. “The government’s approach is not working. We need to look at a longer-term system of community based primary care to take patients out the acute hospital system and to catch patients before they become sick enough to need hospital care. I am genuinely fearful that lives are now being put at risk as sick people get sicker while waiting months and months before they get the treatment they need.” 5,000 PEOPLE WAITING MORE THAN A YEAR FOR OUTPATIENT APPOINTMENT AT HOSPITAL was last modified: March 11th, 2015 by StephenShare 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:deputy charlie mcconaloguedonegalLetterkenny General Hospitaloutpatientwaiting listlast_img read more
