LETTERKENNY, Ireland — A distressed mother was forced to drive her unconscious child to hospital because of HSE cutbacks, it has emerged.
Sinn Fein TD Pearse Doherty blasted the fiasco yesterday as it was revealed a shortage of staff saw the mum take her 11-year-old daughter to Letterkenny General Hospital while a paramedic tended to her in the back seat.
