Carlow Kilkenny TD Pat Deering calls for Health Minister to step down

5890718961_ebfbd98a96_zA Fine Gael TD says there needs to be a “new face” as the Minister for Health.


Carlow Kilkenny deputy Pat Deering’s comments come amid mounting criticism of James Reilly for his handling of discretionary medical cards.


He says a number of his colleagues have expressed similar views – and a “new emphasis” is needed by the Government in the months ahead.


Pat Deering says it’s time for a change in the Department of Health.
