Our health service is being destroyed
If I wasn't in the process of studying for my undergraduate degree, I would seriously consider leaving this miserable country.
The more often I come into contact with the Irish health service, the more annoyed and frustrated I become. Health Minister Mary Harney, in my opinion, has set about destroying the health service.
In Sligo, the general hospital resembles a shell compared with what it once was -- dilapidated wards, beds being closed, staff laid off and cancer services transferred to an over-stretched facility in Galway.
