IPA Statement on the Death of Cervical Check Advocate Vicky Phelan
The Irish Patients' Association is saddened by the news today at the death of Vicky Phelan.
A woman, mother, friend, and a warrior patient advocate who fearlessly upheld patients’ rights and spoke truth to power.
We join in the outpouring of sympathy to her family, Jim, Amelia and Darragh and to her Mam and Dad, her sisters and brothers and her extended family and friends.
‘Change and reform in our health care systems should not be preceded by preventable funerals and injury to patients’
