Donegal Community Hospital X ray unit restored to full service

The x-ray unit at Donegal Community Hospital has been restored to full service.

The x-ray unit was out of service for some time and required upgrading and repair. The HSE has completed essential repair work and the unit is once again operating normally.

Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher, Fianna Fáil, has welcomed the return to use and full service of the x-ray unit. He says the return to full service  follows an earlier intervention by him to the HSE when the x-ray unit was out of use due to breakages. The x-ray unit was out of service earlier and required upgrading and repair.

Deputy Gallagher said he lobbied the HSE and successfully secured  a commitment from them to fund the repairs to the unit in order to get the unit up and running again.

“I am glad to report that as of today the x-ray unit is fully operational and available to the public, the provision of an X ray unit in Donegal town and for the surrounding area is essential as it avoids people and patients having to travel further to avail of x-ray services.

“The original x-ray unit was purchased through voluntary contributions from the general public of the Donegal Hospital catchments area.”

He said he wished to I wish to compliment the HSE for honouring their commitment to fund the x-ray unit and their commitment to maintain it into the future concluded Pat the Cope.
