The Longford Hospital Action Group was set up to highlight the need for a better medical service in County Longford.
With the reassignment of certain medical procedures away from the nearest local hospital in the Midland Health Board region, Mullingar, to Tullamore, the absence of public transport means that some services have become inaccessible to many people.
The establishing of a 24-hour Accident & Emergency department with appropriate X-ray facilities in County Longford is also one of this groups targets.
The Longford Hospital Action Group is campaigning to make all services accessible to all people in the county.
The Longford Hospital Action Group would like to ask all people who have had problems with services supplied by the Midland Health Board, to put them down on paper and send them in to Fr Connerton, The Presbetery, Longford. Fr Connerton is working closely with the local media to highlight the problems being encountered in the health services. Letters will need to have a name and address, which will not be made public. Anonymous contributions will be discarded.
