START DATE FOR NORTHWEST RADIOTHERAPY SERVICES SOUGHT

first_imgPearse Doherty TDDeputy Pearse Doherty will this week raise the new Radiotherapy Unit planned for the northwest with Health Minister Leo Varadkar as well as calling on the Minister to give an expected commencement date for the service.The new unit, which when operational will treat cancer patients from Donegal, Derry and the entire northwest, will be based in Derry’s Altnagelvin Area Hospital.It will be co-funded by health authorities in both the north and south. Deputy Doherty said “The planned Radiotherapy Unit at Altnagelvin Hospital was of course extremely welcome news when it was first announced some time ago, and this development was as all the more acclaimed given the huge level of lobbying and campaigning down through the years which had been carried out by local groups and ordinary citizens alike who passionately called for better cancer services for the region.”“Construction of the new unit started in July of last year and – when complete – will radically improve access to crucial radiation oncology services for cancer patients throughout the Northwest, including those from Donegal.”“In fact, when the service is finally delivered, it is expected to treat 385 patients from the south every year meaning that cancer patients from Donegal, who have historically faced unequal access to health services, will finally be supported by a specialist radiotherapy facility at their doorstep.”“Of course, greater cross-border co-operation with regards health care provision is arguably one of the great successes which have come about as a result of the Good Friday Agreement and the delivery of Radiotherapy services for the Northwest is a prime example of this.” Deputy Doherty said the Minister has previously stated that the service is expected to be open by autumn 2016.He added however, it’s important that the public is regularly kept updated on any and all progress made in relation to the unit and also that this service is kept on the political agenda.“Naturally, it is vital that the Minister now provides a comprehensive progress report on this new service, and give a clear time frame as to when the facility will be operational and ready for use.”“Therefore this week I have tabled a Parliamentary Question to the Minister in which I’ve asked that he provides such an update and that he gives an expected time frame for the delivery of this vital and lifesaving service.”START DATE FOR NORTHWEST RADIOTHERAPY SERVICES SOUGHT was last modified: December 8th, 2015 by StephenShare 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:AltnagelvinDerrydonegalPearse Dohertyradiotherapy unitlast_img read more
