Call for action as Inishowen residents left without doctor for over four weeks

first_imgConcern has been raised over the lack of medical clinics with staff in South Inishowen with the HSE pulling doctors from Fahan and Muff in recent weeks leaving residents with a €30 taxi fare to the nearest practice. The two practices have been left without a doctor for over four weeks and it is understood that the current situation will remain the same until next month at least.Inishowen councillor Martin Farren, speaking to Donegal Daily, said a similar situation arose several years ago. The Moville native has called for the HSE to provide clarity surrounding the ‘outrageous’ uncertainty for the people in the area.He said: “I think it’s absolutely disgraceful that the people of Muff are being treated this way by the HSE.“I would feel the HSE need to get their act together and appoint a doctor to be present at the clinic to deal with peoples medical problems.“To expect patients to travel to Buncrana is totally outrageous and we are actually talking about a 20-mile round trip and if an elderly person has to pay a taxi to get there it is extremely expensive. “In this day and age, this is totally unacceptable to the people of Inishowen and especially the people of Muff and Fahan.“The clinic was put there for a reason,” he added. “The clinic was put there to deal with patients in those areas and so there is an onus on the HSE to sort this out.“This uncertainty that has been given by the HSE, with resident left without a doctor for the past four weeks, is absolutely crazy.“There has to be a timetable put in place so that people know that the doctor is going to be there on a weekly basis to treat the patients,” Farren said.“One of the most important things to people, whether that is families, young people or residents in general, is their health and that needs to be prioritised.” Call for action as Inishowen residents left without doctor for over four weeks was last modified: July 14th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Child of homeless couple stolen, sold for adoption

first_imgA childless couple’s desire to adopt a male child without going through the legal process led to the kidnapping and sale of a two-year-old son of a homeless couple for ₹30,000 in Odisha’s Berhampur.Six persons were arrested on Monday in connection with the theft and sale of the child, who was rescued and handed over to his parents on Sunday night.The arrested persons included the childless couple, Brundaban Rana (52) and his wife Baijayanti; Prafulla Nayak and his wife Mamata, who prepared a false adoption document claiming they were the parents of the kidnapped child; Santosh Rana, the brother-in-law of Brundaban, and another man named Siba Nayak.The parents of the child are from the Gajapati district. They, along with their four-year-old daughter and two year-old-son, had reached Berhampur a few weeks ago to make and sell idols made of plaster of paris and clay. At night they used to sleep under an overbridge in the Gosaninagaon police station area. On September 19 night their son was kidnapped, following which they complained to the police the next day.Police Inspector Sunit Soren said Brundaban, a bank attendant, had asked Santosh to arrange a child for adoption. Santosh contacted his friend Prafulla, who , with the help of Siba, stole the son of the homeless couple. Santosh paid ₹30,000 to Prafulla for the stolen child. “Later Prafulla and his wife prepared a false legal agreement in which they claimed they were handing over their child to Brundaban for adoption by consent,” said Mr. Soren.However, some locals had seen Siba moving around with the child on September 20. On September 22, Siba was arrested and his interrogation revealed the whole racket.last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Cardiff boss Warnock furious with ref ‘experiment’ for Watford defeatby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCardiff City boss Neil Warnock was furious after their 3-2 win over Watford.Andrew Madley officiated the game at Vicarage Road, which ended in a win for the Hornets, the young referee’s first Premier League game of the season.In fact it was only Madley’s second ever match officiating in the English top tier, a decision which left Warnock bemused.”I was disappointed in one or two things,” said Warnock.”I thought Murphy should have had a free-kick, I thought it was very similar to the one he gave on the edge of their box.”And I thought Troy Deeney was lucky not to get a card if I’m honest. Conditions were poor but once he started sliding in and the goalie was going to get it, he could have pulled his foot away.”When I’ve got Andre Marriner sat at the side of me and I’ve got a young referee who’s (refereeing) his first game of the season, I don’t understand that at all.”Whether it’s just because ‘it’s only Cardiff City and we’ll let someone have an experiment today…” last_img read more

He has been here for six years – before and after Cardiff – and is very stable, very loyal and, just like at Manchester United, he is a former player so he knows the club very well and knows the DNA of the club.“He is a very positive guy. He is very easy to like and has a clear vision of how to play football but also works well with individual players.“There is no doubt in my mind that he will do well at Manchester United. He is a club legend there and that immediately means he will get respect from the players and the fans.“I don’t know well enough what’s happened inside Manchester United to comment and I will be careful on what I say on that.“But what I do know is that it’s important that he knows the history of the club and knows Manchester United’s past and what makes them successful.“It’s new times for the players but I know they will like him personally, they will enjoy working with him and it will be a big challenge to get some good results.“Of course it’s a surprise but not so much when you remember he’s got such history with the club, understands the club and he is also such a nice guy. He works so well with players and is a gentleman.” last_img read more

first_imgLeicester boss Rodgers happy with win against Burnleyby Paul Vegas6 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLeicester City boss Brendan Rodgers was delighted with their win against Burnley.City fell behind just after the first half’s midway point, as former Fox Chris Wood nodded in Dwight McNeil’s cross to give Sean Dyche’s men a 1-0 lead, which looked to be intact heading into the break.However, a fine piece of play from Harvey Barnes resulted in his delivery finding Jamie Vardy, whose header – his sixth goal in nine Premier League outings – levelled matters on the stroke of half-time. Youri Tielemans put the Foxes ahead in the 73rd minute.“It’s a very good three points without us being anywhere near our best,” Rodgers told LCFC TV. “I thought that we started slowly and we weren’t aggressive enough. Too many players probably felt that we could just play with the ball and not without the ball.“At this level, you can’t do that against a good team like Burnley who haven’t been beaten away from home since the beginning of the season. You have to earn the right, and we didn’t do that.“Thankfully, we got a goal just before half-time. It was a great cross and wonderful leap by Jamie [Vardy] and finish. But we had to be more aggressive in the game, it was too timid. Like I say, we didn’t want to do the other side of the game.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
