The mobile cath lab secured by Independent Minister of State John Halligan T.D. as part of his ongoing fight to improve cardiology services for the region is scheduled to arrive at University Hospital Waterford on Sunday, 24th September, it’s been confirmed.

The staffed unit will cater for approximately 30 - 45 patients requiring Diagnostic Coronary Angiography per week from the current outpatient list and is expected to completely clear the currently stagnant waiting lists during its five months on site, Minister Halligan said:

“I understand around 30% of people who were offered an appointment in Cork for their Diagnostic Angiogram turned it down, for various personal reasons, so I want to reassure them that the mobile lab is expected to completely clear the backlog at UHW whilst it is

Sinn Fein TD for Waterford Deputy David Cullinane has welcomed news that the long awaited mobile Cath Lab will arrive in Waterford shortly and be operational by early October. He said it represents a step forward but falls far short of what is required.

Speaking today Deputy Cullinane said: "The presence of a mobile Cath Lab at University Hospital Waterford will help in reducing waiting times for planned cardiac work at UHW. This is to be welcomed and represents a step forward.

"However it is not the solution to the overall need to enhance cardiac services in the region. The mobile Lab will provide diagnostic assessments but will not provide a PPCI or emergency cardiac service. In other words the current limited 9-5 Monday to Friday emergency service will remain even with the presence of a mobile Lab.

"It is important that we

Gardai estimates put the number of people who came out to support the returning Waterford All-Ireland Finalists at somewhere between fifteen and twenty thousand. It was an incredible return for the manager Derek McGrath and his charges. Although delayed en route from Dublin, the supporters who turned out on the Quay were treated to some brilliant entertainment from Davy Flynn whom performed his new “Waterford” song and then followed Richie Hayes with backing band Brass and Co. This set from Richie was a stunning forty minutes of song as the crowd joined in with vocals and dance. The whole event on the Quay was co-ordinated by Waterford City and County Council with Richie Walsh as compere.

The dignatories all dressed in their respective gowns arrived half an hour before the team, led

The Ombudsman Peter Tyndall wants to see more Waterford people make complaints about public services such as those provided by government, the HSE, local authorities and public hospitals.

Staff from his office will be in the Tower Hotel, Waterford on Thursday 14 September to take complaints, and provide advice and assistance to those who have had difficulties with public services (10 am to 7pm).

The Ombudsman says that complaints can be used to improve the delivery of public services.

“In most cases the delivery of public services goes well. However, if people don’t complain when things go wrong then people will experience the same problems over and over again. When people complain it gives service providers an opportunity to put things right and to stop the same mistakes happening

The country’s largest community-based older people’s organisation, Active Retirement Ireland (ARI), has today (25.08.2017) reacted to Minister for Social Protection Regina Doherty’s comments on the Public Services Card, calling them “egregious and unnecessary”.

ARI Head of Communications and Public Affairs said his organisation had been taken unawares by the Minister’s revelation on Newstalk that the Public Services Card was now mandatory. “These comments are egregious and unnecessary,” Kavanagh said, “And they show a clear lack of joined-up thinking on the part of the Government. Minister Doherty and her cabinet colleagues have been singing off a variety of hymn sheets on this issue for a week now, and despite the minister’s insistence, the situation is still unclear.”

There has been some confusion over whether citizens need the card after a woman in her 70s was refused her pension because she did not want

Ireland’s first Head of Lobbying Regulation has urged those communicating with local authorities and public officials to consider whether they need to register lobbying activities and if so to do so before September 21st.

A county-by-county analysis of registrations on the lobbying register shows that while Co Waterford has 2.4% of the national population, just 1.5% of those on the lobbying register are from the county. In numerical terms, there are 25 Co Waterford lobbyists registered out of a population of 116,401.

According to the Head of Ethics and Lobbying Regulation Sherry Perreault: “More than 60% of registrants are based in Dublin which is not surprising. Dublin is where many public officials are based, and is the headquarters of many organisations who are lobbying them.

“Yet bearing in mind that the Act covers lobbying about local authority matters including planning as well as

    Dr. StrangeloveFor anyone who is trying to follow what is happening on the Korean peninsula, what with its promises of delivering 'gift packages' to America, you cannot help but feel that there is a bizarre air of unreality about the whole thing. Trying to unravel the manner in which Donald Trump tries to express himself is one thing but that is as nothing when it comes to the North Korean leadership. What is very clear is that North Korea is adamant that it be allowed to develop its nuclear weapons cap …
