Cardiac care demonstration in Kilkenny City this afternoon

Health Campaigners in the South East are demonstrating on the streets of Kilkenny this afternoon.

They want to highlight the need for 24-7 cardiac care at University Hospital Waterford.

CPR demonstrations will be carried out on the parade between 2 and 4pm and organisers are also looking for signatures for their petition to get a second cath lab.

The Health Equality for the South East campaign group is holding the on-street event and they’ll be joined by the Red Cross, the Irish Heart Foundation, and other voluntary ambulance services.

PRO of the Health Equality group, Matt Shanahan, says this is a significant health issue for the south east.
