DEERING Calls for Immediate Replacement of Carlow Radiographer.

30th December, 2013


Carlow Fine Gael TD, Pat Deering, has called for the immediate replacement of Carlow’s Radiographer.

“The X Ray Department in St. Dympnas Hospital has been running effectively and efficiently for many years and has been of great service to the people of Carlow and the surrounding areas. The current Radiographer is due to retire this week and it is vital that the post be filled without delay. I made representations to the HSE as soon the the news of the imminent retirement was brought to my attention.

“All of us living in Carlow know how well this department was run over the years and has been one of the few areas in the HSE that operated without long delays or waiting lists. In recent times the Radiographer provided a service three days a week which meant some slippage in waiting times but it was still manageable. I am calling on the HSE to fill this post immediately on a full time basis.
