Pal­lia­tive Care to im­prove

Bray People - - Report Council -

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.
