first_imgA scene from the flooded hospital last summer donegaldaily.comA FORMER Mayor has called for a full public inquiry into the ‘crisis’ at Letterkenny General Hospital.Independent Cllr Frank McBrearty Jnr has asked Health Minister James Reilly to examine “all issues’ at the hospital which was overwhelmed with patients this week.The daughter of a cancer patient spoke out after she had to wait 14 hours on a trolley; whilst the wife of another patient spoke of her experience of being something like a horror movie. All those PRAISED staff for putting up with the conditions, battling on against all the odds.In this article for Donegal Daily today Cllr McBrearty said everyone supports the staff at the hospital.But he says it would be wrong not to challenge the cutbacks and investigate the flood at the hospital and what has happened since.Here’s his article: By Cllr Frank McBreartyI would first like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude and sincere thanks to all the staff and volunteers who have helped save LGH from the brink of sinking into the abyss.I have been silent on this crisis to date, but I’ve been watching what has unfolded with interest until now. I feel it is my duty to ensure that as a member of the HSE Western Forum and as a public representative that the tax payer has value for money and that there is accountability for the disaster that has happened to Letterkenny General Hospital. I am amazed to hear some of the waffle coming from our national politicians and a small number of local politicians on the disaster and crisis that has hit our county.The contributions made by some politicians have not fooled the public, nor have they solved any of the problems with the hospital services which have been severely damaged by this disaster. Shortly after the crisis began Solicitor Seamus Gunn of McCloughan, Gunn & Co. Solicitors gave his opinion on Highland Radio as to what should happen.His opinion was that the Government should establish a Public Inquiry. When a full independent judicial public inquiry is established the people of Donegal need to demand a proper set of terms of reference that will leave no stone unturned. This will ensure that people will be held to account, and more importantly it will teach us the lessons which will stop this type of disaster ever happening again. Many unanswered questions need to be addressed, and one of the questions being asked is this: Was the procurement and tendering guidelines, which are set in legislation, adhered to ensure that the hospital adheres to HIQUA standards? It is my opinion that where millions of taxpayer’s money is being spent it is imperative that accountability and safeguards are in place to ensure that correct procurement procedures are followed.We must not forget the trojan work done before this disaster by community groups who fought and insisted for many years that LGH would prevail and deliver services that other parts of the country had for many years previously.Many questions are being asked, but sadly they are not being answered.A that needs to be asked and answered is WHY did this happen and who is ultimately responsible? We have a building right across the road known as the old St Conal’s Hospital and I am asking would the millions presently being spent on private rental facilities not have been much better spent on upgrading this old fantastic building which would be a major asset to the county into the future and after services have been transferred back to the general hospital in two years’ time?I believe in the region of over 40 million euro will be needed to bring the hospital back to the standards we had prior to this disaster. Accountability is the word that comes to mind.We hear all the time political waffle about accountability and value for money, but what we don’t see or hear is progress and lessons being learned.I’m calling on all the unions and the people of the County to organise a protest Rally in Letterkenny in order to highlight the crisis that our hospital faces into the future. We must ensure that the level of services which were there before this disaster are maintained and that those services are improved on each year into the future.Finally, and once again, I want to commend all the staff at LGH for their dedication, hard work and commitment to the hospital in very difficult circumstances during this continued crisis. They are an example and credit to the people of this county. We must protect our hospital, the sick, the elderly and the most vulnerable in our society. We must protect the medical staff who work there and given them the resources – and yes – the extra nurses and doctors which are needed.If we don’t stand up for our hospital, no-one else will,Signed Cllr Frank McBrearty JnrFORMER MAYOR: ‘WE NEED FULL PUBLIC INQUIRY INTO LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL CRISIS’ was last modified: January 18th, 2014 by John2Share 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:Cllr Frank McBreartycrisisdonegalLetterkenny General HospitalMayorlast_img read more


€137,000 granted to replace flood-hit Red Cross ambulances

first_imgThe Red Cross in Donegal has been granted to €137,000 from the Government for the replacement of ambulances lost in the Inishowen flood, Minister Joe McHugh has announced.Ambulances used by Red Cross volunteers Muff had been badly damaged during the flooding disaster of August 22nd. The funding will allow for the replacement and fitting out of the vehicles.Donegal TD McHugh secured the funding allocation today following discussions with Cabinet colleague and Minister for Rural and Community Development Michael Ring. “I am delighted to announce that after a further meeting with Minister Ring today that funding of €137,000 is being provided to the Red Cross in Donegal,” said Minister McHugh.“As a result of the flood in August the Red Cross headquarters in Muff was badly damaged with the loss of equipment and vehicles.“I visited the premises the night after the floods and there was understandable devastation amongst those who had worked so hard to obtain all that equipment over many years.“This funding will support the replacement of two ambulances which were destroyed in the flood and allow the fantastic Red Cross volunteers to continue their selfless work for our community. The money will also help with the fitting out of both new vehicles.” Minister Ring added: “Volunteers are the backbone of our communities and I am very happy to be in a position to help the Red Cross in Muff with this funding today.“I know Minister McHugh was keen to secure funding for a group of people who have given so much to the Donegal community over the years. I know the Inishowen flood in August caused so much damage to their headquarters and I am happy that this funding will help to replace the ambulances lost in that terrible disaster for that peninsula and allow them to continue their wonderful work into the future.”€137,000 granted to replace flood-hit Red Cross ambulances was last modified: December 12th, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:Inishowen Floodingirish red crossMinister Joe McHughlast_img read more

‘The poor should not seek loans’

first_img10 August 2005Human rights organisation Black Sash wants the government to remove a section of the proposed National Credit Act that makes it possible for consumers to get a loan without any credit assessment deleted, saying it will expose the poor to abuse by unscrupulous lenders.Speaking during a public hearing on the National Credit Bill in Cape Town last week, Black Sash advocacy coordinator Nceba Mafongosi told Parliament’s portfolio committee on trade and industry that the NGO was opposed to the emergency loan clause in the bill.“It is the Black Sash’s opinion that people who are victims of unanticipated life events should not turn to micro lenders for help,” Mafongosi said.The emergency loan clause covers details of a loan sought by a consumer to finance death, illness or loss caused by natural disasters. According to the clause, the lender can overlook certain issues pertaining to the applicant’s credit unworthiness, such as high debt level and low income.However, the Black Sash says a majority of the poor who experience these forms of hardship don’t have the money to service any loan, and should not seek loans from micro lenders.“A loan at an uncapped interest rate of which the industry standard is 360% per annum should not be the safety net into which such a person falls,” Mafongosi said.“The state’s social security system is and should remain obliged to provide relief for people who have experienced an unanticipated life event.”South Africa’s credit market, which is characterised by high interest rates and illegal debt collection methods, has prompted the drafting of the National Credit Bill.The Bill, introduced in Parliament by the Department of Trade and Industry in June, seeks to address problems of over-indebtedness, reckless lending and consumer exploitation.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more
