Sinn Féin launch Healthcare Waiting List Experience survey to stand up for patients

I am asking people living in County Mayo to take part in the party’s online survey to understand how long healthcare waiting lists are impacting on patients and their families.

David Cullinane, Sinn Féin spokesperson on Health, launched the survey. It will inform the party’s proposals on tackling the waiting list crisis in our healthcare system.

We want to tell the real story of how lengthy waiting lists are affecting patients and families across the state. 

Waiting lists have spiralled over the last decade because of chronic underfunding and Government neglect. And this isn’t good enough. This government failure means that patients all across the state suffer the consequences.

Sinn Féin have launched a survey of patients and their families about how lengthy healthcare waiting lists are affecting them. 

We want to hear directly from patients on waiting lists and their families about the human reality behind the statistics.

Behind every number is a person waiting for care that they need.

I am asking everyone affected to take part in Sinn Féin’s survey and make your voice heard. Sinn Féin will be using the results to inform policy proposals on this which our Health spokesperson David Cullinane TD will be publishing this summer.

The waiting list crisis cannot be allowed to continue any longer. Patients deserve timely healthcare which meets their needs. Sinn Féin will stand up for people on waiting lists in Mayo and across the state to ensure they get the healthcare they need.”
