If you’re sick of our health service, or lack of one, here is your opportunity to campaign for better healthcare. A march and rally has been organised in Dublin to demonstrate public dissatisfaction with the health service. The time has come to show the Minister for Health that enough is enough!
An umbrella group of health unions and patient campaign groups are urging the public to come out in large numbers next Saturday 29th March, and support the march. The rally will assemble from 2.30pm at Parnell Square, Dublin where it will be addressed by speakers, before proceeding to Molesworth Street.
The following speakers will address the rally:
Prof. John Crown, Consultant Medical Oncologist
Conor MacLiam – husband of the late Susie Long
Representatives from the following groups will also contribute:
Doctors Alliance for Better Health Care
Irish Nurses Organisation (INO)
Health Services Action Group
MRSA and Families
Recent cutbacks in government spending have resulted in further suffering for Irish patients. Our government has failed miserably in it’s commitment to deliver an equitable health service based on need. The bureaucrats within the Dept of Health and the HSE should be shamed for the long litany of dysfunction within the health service. Patients have suffered for too long without the basic healthcare they deserve. It’s time for change.
Please support this march to show you care. I’ll be there – will you?
