'Consideration is also being given to mounting a picket at HSE head offices'

The Save Navan Hospital Campaign will see members demonstrate outside Health Service Executive offices on Friday September the 16th next at 1pm.

Consideration is also being given to mounting a picket at the facility.

Meanwhile, a meeting was held last night to discuss the next steps in the fight to save Our Lady’s Hospital Accident and Emergency from closure.

Cathaoirleach of the Campaign, Deputy Peadar Tóibín, said a number of key decisions have been made including calls for community participation in the Review Group to ensure those needs are reflected in the findings.

He added the campaign has secured 15,000 signatures for a petition that will be handed into the Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly, on Friday.

"The meeting made a number of key decisions," Deputy Tóibín continued.

"We are demanding that the terms of reference of the Review into Reconfiguration includes a cost benefit analysis into what investment is necessary for Navan A&E so that it can continue to function in a safe way.

"That this option is not being even considered is a disgrace.

"We will also seek to carry out our own professional independent Feasibility Study into this objective to show the HSE it can be done".
