The Irish Times reports that the Irish Governement has reversed its decision not to build the badly needed CF Unit in Dublin.
It is a disgrace that this unit hasnt been built already and that during the boom the government managed to sqaunder the wealth of this country and not build vital services. The Matron where I used to work said that in her opinion Cystic Fibrosis was one of the worst conditions she had ever seen and one of the most under funded. Ireland has the highest incidence of CF in the World, and the life expectancy is shorter here than in other countries.
Thankfully the right people put the right pressure on the government and they have, for once, done the right thing.
