We have written to the Minister for Health, Simon Harris, to express our extreme concern over the cancellation and postponement of brain tumour surgeries in Beaumont Hospital.
We are extremely concerned about the impact this is having on brain tumour patients, particularly those in need of urgent surgical treatment. Patients suffer when such crucial lifesaving surgery is postponed.
We also recognise the work of the excellent staff in Beaumont Hospital who are dealing with very difficult conditions and do not want to have to cancel or postpone urgent surgeries.
We are pleading with the Minister to do everything in his power to ensure that no more brain tumour surgeries are cancelled or postponed in Beaumont Hospital.
