The HSE must take back control of the dialysis unit project and explore all options to ensure it is provided in Wexford as soon as possible, according to Cllr. George Lawlor.

The Labour councillor said a fresh application that required planning permission would take up to a year to process and that is too long to wait.

He said there are suitable premises available, including one in Clonard Village where a medical centre was built and never occupied.

'It's incumbent on the HSE to ensure no more time is wasted in delivering a dialysis unit for Wexford. People have waited far too long for this service,' he said.
