Letters to the Editor

Reading the dismissive language used by James Menton, chair of St Vincent's Hospital Group, addressing the real concerns of members of the public with regard to the ownership of the planned new maternity hospital ('Nuns will get millions from sale of former hospital land', Irish Independent, May 30) merely reinforced unease at what was being proposed.

To suggest that those concerns were "facile and inaccurate" smacks of arrogance that this issue, and healthcare provision in general, can well do without.

Why can the name of the Irish people not go on the deeds as owners, given that it is they who are footing the bill?
