Health Minister Accused Of Breaking Promise To Purple House Cancer Support

Purple House Cancer support has been actively fundraising to secure a new permanent premises, which they say was achievable, following a commitment from Minister Harris to provide additional capital grant funding to help with the costs  for the new premises.

However it now appears Simon Harris is pulling back from that promise, after the HSE told Purple house management  that it can’t guarantee funding next year.
