Moral Duty lies with the Taoiseach

In an article in the Sunday Independent, 12 June 2016, a young doctor and ex- childhood cancer patient from Galway, now working at St. James’s hospital,  Eamonn Faller, says of the power brokers in St James’s and the government -“Until the people in charge experience these things[access, parking problems] as patients or parents, the actual wellbeing of sick children will remain an abstract concept to them. It’s not their fault, it’s just a fact…….And as a result, it’s looking like the Government, for political reasons, will place an institution’s interest ahead of the welfare of the children in this country.”  http://www.independent.ie/opinion/comment/st-jamess-a-bad-location-for-a-childrens-hospital-34793006.html

NCHA  says it is the government’s responsibility to understand ‘abstract concepts’. The government must face its duty and the evidence and CHANGE THE SITE – NOW.
