Feature: Health in Crisis

The crisis in our health service is continuing, and in fact is being made worse by the vicious cutbacks being imposed by this government. In this special feature Socialist Party reporters from around the country give a glimpse not just of the crisis, cutbacks and closures, but also of the fightback.

First, George Barrett reports from a huge protest in Clonmel against the downgrading of the local hospital there. Next there is an interview with a doctor at Connolly Hospital in Dublin West about the impact of the €13million cutbacks planned for that hospital. Councillor Mick Barry from Cork reports on the threat to the Orthapeic hospital there, and finally Mick Murphy discusses the shocking lack of GPs in the Tallaght area.
