At the meeting, Deputy Shortall – who chairs the Oireachtas Committee on the Future of Healthcare – will set out the Social Democrats’ vision for “an Irish NHS”.

The public meeting has been organised by the Dublin South West branch of the Social Democrats and will take place at The Old Mill Bar, Old Bawn, Tallaght at 7.30pm tomorrow, Monday, 23rd January.

Commenting in advance, Deputy Shortall said: “Health reform is a key priority for the Social Democrats.  Our aim is to build an Irish National Health Service: a publicly-funded service that is accessible to all, improves health outcomes, and reduces the cost of delivering high-quality healthcare. 

“Tonight’s public meeting is timely, given the ongoing focus on hospital overcrowding and waiting lists during the busy winter months.”
