From the 6th of September 2012 there has been no ambulance serving the North Kildare area from the Maynooth base from 7am to 7pm every Thursday. This is part of the first wave of new cuts being implemented by the HSE and Dr James Reilly, Minister for Health. These cuts will mean that response times for ambulances will increase, a decision that will put lives at risk. A group of local residents opposed to these cuts met on the first week of September in the Glenroyal Hotel and have held protests and meetings in Maynooth, Leixlip and Kilcock.

We as a group feel the next step in the campaign to reverse these cuts is to collect a petition of those living, working and studying locally to call on Dr. James Reilly to reverse these cuts. We also stipulate explicitly that these cuts must not be shifted to some other area, the relatively small cost of having an ambulance on standby for 12 hours is nothing in comparison to the billions at Minister Reilly's disposal and a drop in the ocean in comparison to the huge sums of money being used to bail out the bondholders.

If local residents are interested in obtaining a copy of the petition to distribute amongst their friends and family or are interested in being kept up-to-date on developments in the campaign please leave an email address or phone number.
