We need 24/7 Cardiac Care in the South East! - Independent Councillor Breda Gardner Independent Councillor and HSE South East Health Forum member Breda Gardner is adding her voice to the campaign for 24/7 Cardiac Care provision in the South East.

“It’s time that people in Kilkenny woke up to the fact that we should be supporting the campaign for 24/7 Cardiac Care in the South East. If you have an acute heart attack, best practice demands that you get to a dedicated cardiology department within 90 minutes. If the cardiac unit in University

Hospital Waterford is closed, or if you have a heart attack out of hours, in my opinion common sense dictates that the nearest units in Cork or Dublin are far more than 90 minutes away, especially if there is rush hour traffic. “I believe that the HSE needs to reconsider its policy for cardiac care for the South East. Without going into detail - and it pains me greatly to say this - I have seen concrete evidence that leads me to conclude that political considerations are being placed ahead of clinical considerations. I am calling on Minister for Health Simon Harris to commit fully to delivering the best for people in the South East – and that means a unit in University Hospital Waterford providing 24/7 cardiac care.”

Retired Consultant Surgeon Patrick I Condon, MCh., FRCSI has also thrown his weight behind the campaign. “The consultants who work in the cardiac unit in University Hospital Waterford are limited in their ability to advocate on behalf of their patients, so they have asked me to represent their views. It is my considered, professional opinion that the current set-up is for cardiac care is putting patients’ lives at risk. We urgently need this unit, and we need it now,” he says.
