A HSE report has pointed out that because Ireland is such a rural country, it is accepted that ambulances will not get there on time. This is ‘death by geography’.
I called on the Minister for Health Leo Varadkar in a Seanad debate not to turn a blind eye to urgent HSE resource shortages.
“We are asking Deputy Varadkar to be the Minister for Health. We are not saying that what he is doing in his capacity is good enough and we think he should do more and do better”.
