HEATLH SYSTEM CRITICISED OVER SCOLIOSIS WAITING LISTS

A County Wexford mother says her daughter’s been failed by the health system.

Janet Conroy’s daughter Alanna suffers from a severe form of scoliosis and is facing up to a year on a waiting list just to see a consultant after already waiting 6 months.

It’s the second such case highlighted on South East Radio’s Morning Mix in just a week.

Janet says her daughter has already deterioated significanlty in the past six months and urgently requires surgery before she’s left in a wheelchair.

She says she’ll continue fighting for her daughter whether that means going abroad to seek the treatment she needs.
