Tom McCormack slams the Fianna Fail Deputy’s record and says as a Government TD, he should be doing more to improve patient care in Kerry. He goes on to accuse Tom McEllistrim of being out of touch with local health services and failing to realise how bad things are at Tralee General. The consultant surgeon says in the last 2 years, the hospital has been underfunded by at least 4 million euro leading to staff shortages and lack of intensive care beds. He claims this summer’s ward closure will lead to longer waiting lists and will seriously affect patients and staff. A spokesperson for Tom McEllistrim says the td met Mr McCormack last week and that he takes very seriously the issues raised in the letter. Tom McEllistrim has asked the Minister for health to investigate mr mccormack’s concerns, the spokesperson said.
