« BackCavan nurse hits out at government

HealthmoneyA district nurse in Co Cavan is hitting out at the government’s decision to pull disability payments from the most vulnerable.

The coalition cut the mobility grant scheme – along with the motorised transport grant – last week after it was found to be illegal because eligibility for the allowance discriminated against the over 65s.

Phena is a local nurse who works in Killeshandra.

She says there are plans for a rally against cutbacks within our health service.

And speaking on today’s Joe Finnegan Show, she says the government has yet again targeted the most vulnerable in our community.
