Ambulance Base for Buncrana confirmed- Senator Padraig Mac Lochlainn

Inishowen Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has received official confirmation from the National Ambulance Service (NAS) that Buncrana is to have an ambulance base with six ambulance staff.

Senator Mac Lochlainn welcomed the news as a “great day for the people of Buncrana and Inishowen”.

He said:

“Myself and my colleagues, Cllrs Jack Murray and Albert Doherty have long called for this and in a meeting with senior management of the National Ambulance Service late last year, they indicated this was their plan but it required sign off from the HSE.

This morning, I have received confirmation from Paudie O’ Riordan the Area Operations Manager West of the NAS that he will be allocating six ambulance staff to a base in Buncrana in the next few months once they are recruited and trained.

This will be a second ambulance crew and service for the people of Inishowen. Mr O’ Riordan also advised me that he wishes to commence a day time base at Buncrana in the next number of weeks with existing staff in advance of the new crew taking up their roles”.

“This is a great day for the people of Buncrana and Inishowen. For so many years, we have called for this vital additional service and I look forward to a full compliment of ambulance bases in Carndonagh, Buncrana and Letterkenny looking after our community in the time ahead”.
