Government Inaction Is Being Blamed For The Long Wait Times For Patients Seeking To Access Hospital Care

Government inaction is being blamed for the long wait times for patients seeking to access hospital care.

In June the Association launched the Care Can't Wait Campaign and ahead of the by election in Cork North Central the campaign is being stepped up with ads placed in in local newspapers and on bus shelters.
The IHCA's Martin Varley told RedFM News that it's time the waiting lists were tackled:
