Babies wait two years for heart care appointment at Dublin hospital

It has emerged that babies in need of specialist heart care will have to wait two years before getting an appointment at Temple Street Children's Hospital in Dublin.

It comes a week after the Health Minister James Reilly said no one should be left waiting for cardiology treatment for longer than 12 months.

The Irish Independent says that 367 children were waiting more than a year for a heart appointment in Temple Street last year.
