Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Hospital Services (28 Jun 2022)

Shane Cassells: We are told by the HSE that medical safety issues dictate its policies and that clinicians know best. No one questions that, but what we are being asked to accept from an agency whenever it fails people in emergency departments across the country like it did in Limerick is a one-word statement from its PR department telling us, "Sorry".

This will...
