Donegal Action Against Cancer Care has again highlighted its fears over the breast cancer unit at Letterkenny General Hospital.Betty Holmes of DACC.While a follow up meeting has been confirmed for 20th August at the Dept. of Health in Dublin, DACC continue to highlight their concerns.The centralisation of the referral process of appointments for people who are referred to the Breast Unit are now made through the Lead Breast Surgeon at Galway University Hospital.This means that all appointments for the Breast Unit at Letterkenny Hospital were made on a daily basis at LGH for almost 10 years.Now all requests for appointments to the Breast Unit must now be forwarded to Galway University Hospital on a daily basis and the appointments are made twice weekly for these patients by the Lead Breast Surgeon in Galway.A spokesperson for DACC said “We in DACC are being told by Saolta that this referral process is working well…how can it? And who decides it is? The Breast Unit at Letterkenny Hospital was allocating its own appointments for patients for approx. ten years now we have decisions on appointments made twice weekly by Galway.“We feel that there is little awareness by people of what this will mean for the Breast Unit at Letterkenny Hospital. What is wrong with Letterkenny’s Breast Unit Breast Surgeon allocating appointments for Donegal patient’s? Is the Breast Surgeon at Letterkenny being forced into a position where he will leave, we in DACC ask? This is the first step in downgrading the Breast Unit and if we the people don’t get involved the Breast Unit will be taken away and we will see everyone having to travel to Galway by the end of 2017 or earlier. Is this what the people and more importantly Donegal breast cancer patients want & need? If you think it can’t or won’t happen remember that Letterkenny Hospital was a leader in Ireland with their Prostate Cancer Services for 20 years which were removed to Galway as part of the Rapid Access Clinics. Now we have bus loads of men heading down the road to Galway Hospital for a service that should have bene retained at Letterkenny Hospital” says Betty Holmes DACC.She continued “It is 308 KM one way from Malin to Galway. Why was this massive change made by Saolta? Is this in the best interest of the Breast Cancer Patient and the Breast Unit? Is this Medical Politics? Remember the administrative staff at the Breast Unit must now daily spend what we imagine must be two or three hours sending all the appointments requests to Galway Hospital. How does this impact on their daily working day?“Commitments were given at the meeting in the Dept. of Health on the 27th Feb that Galway Breast Consultants would travel to Letterkenny Hospital ¾ days per month. This hasn’t happened. One consultant who has been a supporter of the Breast Unit continues to come up. Where are the other four Consultants? Why have they not been up? Remember we in DACC believe each Breast Surgeon should have 50 new Breast Cancers , have the 5 consultants in Galway this number each? The Dept of Health, the HSE & Saolta keep telling Donegal Action for Cancer Care that the Breast Cancer Services at Letterkenny Hospital are safe & secure. We ask them as we have done where will they all be at the end of 2017 or sooner when the services are removed? Still in their jobs no doubt!DACC CONTINUE TO EXPRESS FEARS OVER BREAST CANCER SERVICES was last modified: July 18th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Betty HolmesdonegalDonegal Action Against Cancer Care
