Navan Hospital Protest Rally On 17th May

category meath | rights, freedoms and repression | event notice author Monday April 28, 2014 23:29author by Save Navan Hospital Report this post to the editors

Save Navan Hospital from closure

The Save Navan Hospital campaign are organising a protest to vent their anger at the proposals to downgrade the Accident and Emergency department at Our Lady’s Hospital following a meeting last week attended by over 100 people.

Local campaigners fear they have just over a year to save Navan’s emergency department following a clear indication from senior HSE management two weeks ago that the facility will be relocated to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda next year

From coverage in the Meath Chronicle:

Campaign chairman, Deputy Peadar Tóibin, said this week that the mood at last week’s meeting had been very angry.
“It would appear that there is massive discontent in Meath that the A&E will no longer be a 24 hour service.
“The Save Navan Hospital Campaign is fully committed to save the current A&E facilities until the new regional hospital is built,” he said.
The campaign will now start mobilising local clubs, organsiations, schools and churches to take part in the protest on 17th May.
More than 10,000 people took to the streets of Navan in October 2010 to protest at the downgrading of the hospital and an estimates 6,000 protested in a mass rally again in November 2011.
