Mobile lab for UHW to be delivered 'in June'

Mobile lab for UHW to be delivered 'in June'

Waterford Minister of State John Halligan has issued a statement confirming that a mobile cath lab will be delivered for University Hospital Waterford.


He said the deployment order for the mobile lab had been signed by Minister for Health Simon Harris last week as part of the waiting list plans. 


The Independent Alliance TD said this was the formal green light for the mobile lab, which is scheduled to be on site in June.


The development comes following calls from Waterford TD David Cullinane for clarity over the situation.


Campaigner with the South East Patient Advocacy Group Hilary O'Neill said she remained cynical, and 'would wait and see'. She also said that a mobile cath lab was not the answer anyway.
