    New voluntary cancer-screening service in Donegal

    According to the RTÉ News, a new not-for-profit group in Donegal are to open a centre in Letterkenny to offer a breast cancer screening service for women in the area.

    This is, in my opinion, a welcome development and a real sign of a community taking responsibility and not relying on the Government to take every initative. Well done Donegal.

    What's to pity. Community initative is a wonderful thing. We don't need the Government to run our lives, communities are much better at these things.

    The 'richest country in Europe' yet basic health services have to be done by volunteers. You PD/FF lamebrains must be proud.

    The pity is that I pay quite a bit of tax and expect not to have to rely on my community for my healthcare. What am I paying them for?

    basic healthcare is hardly running your life.

    What's the point
    Isn't breastcheck currently (as in even as I write this) being rolled out nationwide*?



    [size=7]*breastcheck is currently available in the north-east, east, midlands and parts of the south east[/size]

    The lack of Breast check services in the Northwest has been a serious problem in recent years - shamefully so.

    But am I right in thinking that if diagnosed they have to travel significant distances to get proper care?
    Centres of excellence are a great idea in theory - once everyone can access them.
    Having to travel to Belfast or Galway or Dublin from Donegal is unacceptable for people and their families.
