Shame on ‘mean’ HSE

Irish Daily Mail - - News -

IT was the phone call Is­abel Terry dreamed of. Yes­ter­day, the Cork woman was told the or­gans she needs for a dou­ble lung and heart trans­plant had be­come avail­able, and an air am­bu­lance was sent from a hos­pi­tal in the UK to col­lect her.

This is no good re­flec­tion on the HSE, which re­fused to pay for her to travel there for as­sess­ment. A pri­vate donor had to step in to cover the cost of that flight, and the hos­pi­tal is cov­er­ing yes­ter­day’s flight and the op­er­a­tion.

What a sad in­dict­ment of the HSE, see­ing it sit back and let­ting our neigh­bours pay for what we surely can af­ford our­selves.
