Burke calls for increased resources for Temple Street Childrens Hospital

Sinn Fein Dublin City Councillor Christy Burke this evening attacked the Rainbow Coalition, particularly the Labour and Democratic Left members of the government, for their failure to address the appaling conditions which continue to prevail in Temple Street Children's Hospital.

Councillor Burke said:

``Since the last election there has been a complete failure to address the appalling conditions which exist in Temple Street Children's Hospital. There is a need for resources to be urgently invested in the hospital both to increase staff levels and to expand the vastly over-crowded waiting area.'' ENDS
