Doherty hits out over lack of clarity about Donegal community hospitals

A Donegal TD says that because the HSE has still not received formal approval for redevelopment work at two community hospitals in the county, hundred of thousands of euro will now be spent on carrying out minor refurbishments.

Sinn Fein Deputy Pearse Doherty says the long-awaited work is now badly needed at St Joseph’s in Stranorlar and Rameltaon community hospitals.

Meanwhile, there were stormy scenes in the Dail yesterday when Minister Jim Daly, who has responsibility for Mental Health and Older People, suggested Deputy Doherty wait for the capital plan.
