Now, I am from the other end of the country but have to say I really feel for patients in Donegal having to travel so far for their chemo etc.
There was an interesting story on Pat Kenny RTE 1 this morning re the Donegal Dublin Cancer bus. The HSE has apparently withdrawn funding for this service and now patients must go via private buses/CIE.
It think this is a particularly mean move as in all fairness the journey is 4 hours plus. People can naturally be sick on the long journey and likely need the toilet regularly. It really must be such a blow to anybodies dignity and comfort to be on a bus that cannot stop if patients are sick etc.
I forget how lucky we are sometimes, as Dublin is just an hour to hour half away on a good motorway.
