Election promises and hospitals

Fine Gael’s James Reilly said that the money will follow the patient.

However, so far all we’ve seen is the patient following the money – all the way down the N63 to Galway which is about an extra 80km, and here in Wicklow it looks like patients will be forced to travel an additional 19km on the N11 from St Columcille’s Hospital to St Vincent’s.

Regrettably it seems FG’s definition of a fair society is one where their politicians tell lies to get into power, their Ministers shamelessly carry out U-turn after U-turn, and their sick voters die when travelling needless extra kilometres
