Daly Demands Answers On Elective Surgery Cancellations At UHK

Posted by


Deputy Pa Daly.

SINN Féin TD for Kerry, Pa Daly, is asking the South/South West Hospital Group why elective surgeries at University Hospital Kerry are not going ahead.

While UHK management announced on Friday, September 9 that elective surgeries had been cancelled up to and including Monday September 12, Deputy Daly says it has been almost three weeks since elective surgeries were cancelled in UHK due to overcrowding.

“I am informed that surgeries remain cancelled with the exception of time-critical cancer operations,” he said.

“Having been contacted by people working in the hospital, and asking for details for any credible plan to address the problem, I am still awaiting answers.  I have asked the CEO of the South/South West Hospital Group for a reply and am awaiting a reply from either the CEO or the management in UHK.”

“I have also raised a number of questions regarding plans to resume surgeries, address staffing issues and the status of UHK as a Model 3 hospital to Stephen Donnelly,” he added.
