Time for court action

Yet another report from the HSE outlining the suffering and death of patients because of bureaucratic incompetence. A delay of 14 months in cancer diagnosis had serious consequences for nine patients and resulted in the death of at least one of them. In my book this is manslaughter at minimum.

The HSE reacted in its usual sly and callous manner, releasing the report on a day when the media were focused on the historic events unfolding in America.

It’s long past time that somebody in the HSE was hauled before the courts on a charge of manslaughter.
