Better Breastcare in Ireland

WE THE UNDERSIGNED demand that the HSE address and correct the appalling lack of timely access to adequate breast health care in Ireland. Specifically, we call for the following: ONE, widespread, rapid local access to diagnostic services and equipment for timely response to GP referrals; TWO, a faster and more streamlined referral system; THREE, a one year timetable for nationwide roll out of BreastCheck for women 50 - 64 and an end to the North/South divide in access to this service; FOUR, an increase in the number of consultants available to women for diagnosis and treatment, regardless of hiring freezes and negotiation status. We call on Mary Harney and the HSE to stop putting women\'s lives at risk through inadequate access to basic breast care equipment, staff and services. We demand better access to breast health care, now.


This petition is sponsored by, the an online Irish Women\'s Health Campaign. The completed petition with all Irish-resident signatures will be hand-delivered to the offices for the Minister for Health on March 7th, 2008.
