Dear Minister Harney,
It concerns a woman with a lump and a bleeding breast who can’t get an appointment to be examined in one of your hospitals. Perhaps as a woman you might have some vague understanding of the predicament. Minister, this woman desperately needs a doctor. Do something about it.
(By the way, you’ll remember the mileage RTE’s Liveline got out of the story of a woman who died as a result of being unable to get treatment in time. Well, this one is the cancer story Joe Duffy didn’t want to know about).
