When you hear a Politician talk about Slaintecare, yet see posing for the cameras at the opening of another Private Hospital it’s no wonder the public a sceptical. Our guest is Consultant Paediatric Radiologist at the Children’s University Hospital, Temple Street and the National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street, Dublin, Dr Gabrielle Colleran. She is also Head of Radiology at the National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street, Dublin.
This is brilliant discussion that covers the effect of homelessness on the health service, the rigged Public vs Private narrative and why the waiting times for care can lead to worse patient outcomes.
We also get into what real solutions need to be implemented and how public pressure is required. Care can’t wait!
