The Midwest Hospital Campaign Group insists the Government has no choice but to scrutinise the clinical advice preventing the reopening of Ennis’s accident and emergency unit.

It comes ahead of the group’s ‘Drive to Save Lives’ protest tomorrow which is pushing for the reopening of the A&Es and Ennis, Nenagh and St. John’s.

The convoy will meet at the Clare Mart Complex in Ennis at 11am before continuing to St. John’s Hospital in Limerick for 12pm and proceeding to the HSE Regional Offices at Houston Hall in Raheen.


Ballyvaughan-based Midwest Hospital Campaign Group spokesperson Noeleen Moran¬†says the advice suggesting that reopening Ennis’s facility would be unsafe doesn’t take the current unsafe conditions at UHL into account.
