Another Member Of Slaíntecare's Implementation Advisory Council Resigns

The Health Minister Wicklow T.D. Stephen Donnelly  is in the firing line again after the latest resignation from the Slaintecare programme.

Minister Donnelly insists the government remains committed to implementing universal healthcare -  after Professor Anthony O'Connor stepped down from its implementation advisory council yesterday. His departure  follows the resignation  of two other senior members early last month.
The high-profile consultant said he was disappointed with the pace of the project, but Stephen Donnelly says Sláintecare is still the roadmap for health reform.
Professor Bill Tormey, a consultant in Beaumont Hospital, says the Minister should order a review of the project.
