NO EXPENSIVE PUBLIC INQUIRY INTO HOSPITAL FLOOD – HSE

first_imgPic By Gerry AdamsTHE HSE has dismissed suggestions that there should be an expensive public inquiry into what caused €8M worth of damage to Letterkenny General Hospital eight days ago.Sources in the authority said a “comprehensive” internal investigation would look at what caused the collapse in acute health care in County Donegal eight days ago.The sources also said the results of the investigation would be made public once they have been reviewed by lawyers. The stream which burst its banks sending water cascading into the new €20M Emergency Department is on HSE property, so responsibility for its maintenance rests with the hospital.However one senior HSE official told Donegal Daily: “The idea that we would spend millions of euro on a public inquiry is just ridiculous when every cent is needed for patient care and rebuilding Letterkenny General Hospital.“Our investigation, overseen by the Department of Health, will be thorough and honest.“There is no need to waste more money on public inquiries, lawyers and all that entails. We don’t believe there is an appetite for that.”  NO EXPENSIVE PUBLIC INQUIRY INTO HOSPITAL FLOOD – HSE was last modified: August 2nd, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:NO EXPENSIVE PUBLIC INQUIRY INTO HOSPITAL FLOOD – HSElast_img
