Casey calls for installation of ATM Machine at Daisy Hill Hospital
Newry City Councillor Charlie Casey has called on the Southern Trust to look into the viability of an ATM machine being placed in the hospital facility.
Speaking on the matter the Sinn Féin Councillor told Newry Times, “I am calling on the Southern Trust Management to seriously consider the prospect of installing an ATM machine in the vicinity of the hospital.
“It makes sense for this to happen given the large number of people who work in the hospital and also the huge volume of people who go through the hospital on a daily basis. The nearest bank machine is at the bottom of Monaghan Street and is situated close to the junction which leaves it difficult for drivers to park close to it.
Casey continued, “I believe that a machine which would be accessible by both staff and patients would be an asset to the hospital. This idea was mooted some time ago but it was argued then that there was not enough footfall to justify a bank machine at Daisy Hill. I do not believe that this is the case anymore.
“You only have to walk by the hospital any day and see that all the car parking spaces are fully used along with any other available parking spots which prove the large volume of people using the facility whether for working or visiting loved ones.
The local Councillor added, “I will be discussing this issue with my colleague Mickey Brady MLA and we will be exploring the issue further. I would invite anyone who agrees with me on this issue to contact Newry Sinn Féin office 028 302 61693 to lend your support.”
