The Donegal Action for Cancer Care group is demanding answers after they have been left waiting three months for a meeting with the Health Minister. The voluntary group, who campaign for equal access to cancer and health services in Donegal, met with Minister Simon Harris on 6th March.A follow up meeting was promised to discuss outstanding questions, but the DACC say they are still waiting on a date to be confirmed. Betty Holmes of DACC asked: “So what do we in Donegal Action for Cancer Care have to do to get this meeting? Do they who are in paid positions really care about Letterkenny University Hospital, Donegal’s Community Hospitals and access or lack of it to health care for Donegal patients and sick people?“We have written a few times to all those who charged with arranging it (the follow-up meeting), we have even written to Minister Harris letting him know the meeting hasn’t happened.”Ms Holmes said she has written to the Health Minister once more to say that the lack of action is unacceptable.She said: “For us in DACC it is very important that we in Donegal all have the opportunity to attend meetings together so we can ask our questions and come up the road again clear about what is being said.” “DACC are not going away nor are we giving up!“We will do what we can within our role to work and fight hard for Donegal cancer and health services!,” Ms Holmes added.Cancer campaign group seeks urgent meeting with Health Minister was last modified: June 17th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)
Brand South Africa hosted a diverse group of international academics at the University of Pretoria on 5 October, for its first day-long University Dialogue on the Nation Brand.In welcoming delegates, vice chancellor Professor Cheryl de la Rey said that, given the ongoing protest and debate on campuses across South Africa, the event was a timely reminder of the crucial role universities play in defining and shaping a nations’ identity.The University of Pretoria, she said, was committed to its role in advancing South Africa as a nation. “This is the opportune time to host this event. It is a moment to think deeply of the value of public institutions to society and brand in South Africa.”Today’s event brings together a range of leading academics to deliberate on how South Africa is currently positioned, whether this positioning is positive or negative, what is working, and how the various elements of the brand impact on nation brand positioning.The discussion is intended to give Brand South Africa a solid basis from which to critique the work currently executed, with a range of stakeholders, in positioning South Africa competitively and positively.“Universities are the public spaces for discourse on the nature of our society,” De la Rey said. A strong and resilient nation brand, she said, was built on a common vision and a shared identity. Universities were the place where a nation of people should discover who they are.She added that she hoped today’s discussions would end with innovative and creative solutions to the fault-lines we face as a nation.Ambassador Kingsley Makhubela, Brand South Africa CEO, said that universities were the perfect venue for the nation brand conversation. “Academic communities allow for open discussion.”The issue to be discussed today, he said, was how we overcome the problem of blurred lines when we try to define a strong state versus nation brand. “A strong state will build a strong nation brand,” he said.The solutions generated today would be useful, so he encouraged delegates to be frank and open. “The ideas we generate today will have an impact. They will inform policy.”SouthAfrica.info reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See Using SouthAfrica.info material.
