first_imgA Donegal council is calling on the Health Service Executive to make sure doctors have fluency in the English language.Buncrana Town Council backed a motion by Cllr Mary Kelly.Cllr Kelly made the call after a number of constituents claimed they could not understand doctors at various medical facilities locally. Cllr Kelly told Donegal Daily the situation is becoming so serious that she fears a patient will be misdiagnosed if something is not done.“I raised the issue because I fear it is a genuine cause for concern and it is only getting worse.“A number of people have come to me with various incidents and expressed their concern.“People are embarrassed if they cannot understand a doctor and they simply agree with them in the end and that is a dangerous thing. “I do fear that there will be a misdiagnosis if something is not done,” she said.  COUNCILLOR WANTS HSE TO ENSURE DOCTORS IN DONEGAL HAVE STANDARD OF ENGLISH was last modified: May 14th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:cllr mary kellyHSElast_img
