Public Meeting on A&E Crisis

Limerick's Regional Hospital (UHL) is in crisis. There has been a 26% increase in patients on trolleys in A&E this year alone. This overcrowding is the result of cuts and the closure of the A&E's in Ennis, Nenagh and in St. Johns Hospital.

Come to this meeting to hear from guest speaker Marie O'Connor, health journalist and author of the book "Emergency: Irish Hospitals in Chaos", and get involved in making the need to re-open St. John's Ennis and Nenagh A&E departments a major issue in the upcoming General Election,

As part of the campaign,a facebook page "Limerick A&E Trolley Tales" has been set up, where people are invited to share their stories of A&E over-crowding, and under-staffing.

We need to demand a recovery in our health service, and the re-opening of these A&Es. With the General Election around the corner, this public meeting is a chance for us to discuss how to put this issue firmly on the agenda. We want to get every candidate to commit to re-opening the closed A&Es to take the pressure of UHL, and reverse the cuts in beds, nurses and staff.
