Sinn Fein TD for Waterford David Cullinane has welcomed an announcement of funding for the deployment of a modular cardiac Lab at NUniversity Hospital Waterford.

Deputy Cullinane said: "I welcome the announcement of funding for a modular Lab for UHW. A modular Lab is a game changer and will significantly increase capacity at the hospital and allow for both diagnostic angiogram and intervention work to be done. This will significantly reduce wait times.
