first_imgA total of 177 people, most of them children, have been waiting more than a year to see an orthodontist at Letterkenny General Hospital.Charlie McConalogueThe figures were released to Fianna Fáil TD for Donegal North East Charlie McConalogue who says the current waiting list is completely unacceptable.Deputy McConalogue commented, “The length of waiting times for orthodontic treatment at Letterkenny General Hospital is more evidence of the mishandling of the health service by this Government, and more particularly Minister James Reilly. “Patients in Donegal, and across the North West are being forced on to long waiting lists for neurological services, rheumatology services and orthopaedic services. Now orthodontic treatment can be added to those ever expanding lists.“The majority of people having to wait for orthodontic treatment are children, and in many cases are in severe pain. It is not too much to ask that our children receive the care they need within a reasonable amount of time.“Across the HSE West region, there are almost 5,000 people on a waiting list for an orthodontic appointment. Nearly 2,000 of them have been waiting more than 12 months, and in some instances people have been on the same list for up to 4 years.”He claimed this Government has been leading a sustained attack on local health services, especially in the North West region. Patients in Donegal are expected to either wait or travel to receive essential medical services. “This is a completely unacceptable expectation and has been brought about solely by the extensive cutbacks forced in by Minister Reilly. His inability to balance his department’s books has exacerbated the situation, leading to reduced services, restricted access and longer waiting times”.DONEGAL CHILDREN WAITING MORE THAN A YEAR TO SEE ORTHODONTIST was last modified: July 11th, 2014 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:Charlie McConaloguedonegalorthondontistlast_img read more
