, show what is currently remaining of the once proud Ward 3 at the Mid Ulster Hospital, Magherafelt. A Ward that cared for cancer patients, stroke vicitms and the elderly was wiped out before its time with a phone call.
Nurse are still not redeployed, families were not contacted about their sick relatives being moved, all this was done to prevent any objections being raised.
Why are public paid servants, some of whom are paid over 100 thousand pounds a year allowed to act outside of public control and public knowledge?
Where are our political leaders while Mid Ulster is being torn apart? where is the outcry from our newly elected representatives, the Mid Ulster Hospital has saved the lives of some of our newly elected representatives but the same people are standing back and ensuring that the Mid Ulster Hospital is not allowed to save the lives of anyone else.
There are currently trolley waits at Antrim, last week according to staff amounted to over 90, yet the Northern Health & Social Care Trust still push on. There are thousands of patients waiting each month in A&E waiting rooms for treatment since the Northern Trust removed Mid Ulster A&E, again thousands waiting on outpatient lists across Northern Ireland.
The Causeway Hospital where staff from Mid Ulster are being redeployed is under threat, regardless of what information comes from the Northern Trust the Causeway is currently being run down the same way Mid Ulster was.
Save The Mid are asking every representative what are they going to do about it?
