Physio / Health services availability in Erris

This petition had 546 supporters

Recently a decision was made to withdraw the availability of a public Physiotherapy clinic in Belmullet Hospital. I am traveling to Castlebar Hospital, like many people, for access to healthcare services and now I am having to go weekly to a physio appointment. I battle the Castlebar road weekly and at the moment I'm reasonably able to make this trip and once I'm no longer on maternity I will have to go back to paying for private treatment. However, I know there are many people that can't drive themselves or make the journey. With such a large population in a remote area I feel that access to public health facilities is vital and is the right of the people living in the area. If we let the Physiotherapy clinic go without a fuss in the next round of cuts will we lose something else?? Please sign this petition to highlight how many people use these services and how withdrawing them impacts on us - either financially or physically by having to pay for private clinics or having to travel to Castlebar/Ballina.
