Minister McHugh hosts meeting with Health Minister Simon Harris in Government Buildings to discuss ambulance services

Donegal TD Joe McHugh hosted a delegation from the county at Government Buildings on Tuesday evening for a meeting with Health Minister Simon Harris.

Discussions centred on ambulance services, including in the Killybegs area.

Mr McHugh, Government Chief Whip and Minister for the Irish language, Gaeltacht and the Islands, said: “Our meeting in Government Buildings was a valuable opportunity to sit down and discuss issues relating to the ambulance service in Donegal.

“I would like to thank Health Minister Simon Harris for taking the time to hear from the delegation and to listen to the concerns they have.

“I am also arranging for the delegation to hold discussions with the head of the National Ambulance Service in the coming weeks where they can set out the distinct needs of the region.”

The delegation included Manus Boyle, Noel McBride, Tom Slater and Micky Doherty.

Mr McHugh said: “I will continue to facilitate discussions at a high level in Government on these vitally important issues and I am also coordinating a meeting in the coming weeks with Minister Harris and a delegation involved in cancer care in Donegal.

“Securing improved services for South and West Donegal is a key priority and these meetings are an essential step in my work delivering for the county.”
