Palliative Care to improve
THE recently-hampered palliative care services in Co. Wicklow, which saw many terminally ill cancer patients spend their final months without the care to which they were entitled, is to be greatly improved with the addition of three new nurses within the county.
Members of Wicklow County Council were informed recently that the HSE expects to fill the advertised vacancies before the end of the year.
Cllr. Vincent Blake welcomed the news and commented that he hopes to see notable progress sooner rather than later.
