7,000 bear a helping hand against Crumlin cutbacks.

Byline: PAT FLANAGAN

ANGRY parents campaigning against hospital funds being reduced handed in a petition with more than 7,000 signatures to the Health Department yesterday.

Molly McNiffe helped her mum Aisling hand over 500 teddy bears as part of Campaign Against Cutbacks at Crumlin Children's Hospital.

The bears were left by the public on the railings of Leinster House after a recent protest against the cutbacks. A ward and one theatre remain closed, despite HSE Chief Executive Prof Brendan Drumm's claims this week that the hospital's budget had not been reduced.
