*THREAD* As many of you now by know, last week a sitting FG #MEP & candidate in #MidlandsNorthWest (name is disclosed this time) tried to publicly dismiss the data I presented re: our health system. I've thought about this a lot & am now asking people to #refute or #clarify ⬇️
2/ I said: "Ireland statistically has the WORST #waitinglists in Europe."
(Said MEP suggested waiting lists numbers were high because patients don't attend appointments - and that the technology to collect data could be wrong)...
3/ Throughout the meeting I said:

⛔️500,000 + people are on #waitinglists for #appointments
⛔️70,000 + await #daycase and inpatient #procedures
⛔️80,000 + women await smear test results
⛔️10,000 + patients left on #trollies incl. elderly, and children...

*Thread* Was at a husting today AND when I highlighted the actual #waitinglist statistics for access to #healthcare #consultants and lack of #frontlinestaff #nurses & #GPs a sitting MEP & member of one our main political parties aimed to DISMISS the data... 1/
The data I presented was not compiled by me but by many prestigious organisations who represent #nurses #doctors #midwives #consultants #pharmacists #paramedics #carers #physios #OTs (tag anyone you wish here) 2/
The response I (and the audience got) was along the lines of “with technology data can be wrong” and “people don’t turn up to appointments”. I had no hestitation in finding an example and explained just how bloody difficult it can be for the #elderly to attend clinics... 3/

🚨Thread alert: I have some things to say about Doug Ford *retroactively* cutting funding for @CMO_OSFO. #midwives #onpoli #fempoli
The work of Midwives is sacred. They literally usher new life into the world. They work with moms and their newborns for weeks after birth to make sure they are supported and healthy. The work of midwives is also gendered work.
It's work that inherently holds less value socially because it is caring work done predominantly by women for women. We literally just proved this in a groundbreaking court case won by midwives that showed the Ontario Government was discriminating & underpaying them.
