About Jack Chambers
Welcome to my website.
My name is Jack Chambers and I am a Councillor representing the people of Dublin West on Fingal County Council.
- I was honoured to receive such a strong mandate from the people and I am passionate about politics and the progression of solutions to the challenges that our communities face. I will continue to represent our community in an open and honest manner and will provide a proactive and committed presence on Fingal County Council.
- I was elected to the Council’s Audit Committee, the HSE’s Regional Health Forum, the Fingal Joint Policing Committee and the Blanchardstown Community Policing Forum. This will greatly help me to give better representation on the issues that affect people.
- I opened a Local Office in the Laurel Lodge Shopping Centre in my role as Local Area Representative and I am keeping this office open as a Fingal Councillor with regular clinics.
- I have been actively involved in many of the local sports clubs throughout my youth and I have have grown up in the Dublin 15 Area having attended St. Brigid’s National School. I have completed an Honours Degree in Law and Political Science from Trinity College and I am currently studying Medicine.
- I hope to provide active representation and articulate any local or national issues of concern to you. I can be contacted at 086-4177335 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The waiting lists for outpatient procedures have spiralled out of control, with the numbers waiting for outpatient procedures for more than a year increasing eight fold in Connolly Hospital, the Mater and St James since last year, according to new figures from the HSE.
Of the acute hospitals Beaumont has seen the most alarming increase, with 2,758 patients now waiting for more than a year for their procedure. That’s up by 2,664 patients since this time last year and up by 232 between January and February of this year alone.
The Eye and Ear Hospital is under severe pressure with 3,199 patients who are now waiting for over a year for their procedure. That’s an increase of 2,945 since February last year when there were 254 patients waiting for over a year.
Many of the acute Dublin hospitals have also seen a doubling of inpatient waiting times.
Cllr Jack Chambers has said it shows the health system is out of control.
Dublin West General Election candidate, Cllr Jack Chambers, has accused the Government of turning a blind eye to the escalating drugs crisis in West and North Dublin.
It comes after Fianna Fáil revealed figures showing dramatic cuts in the number of gardaí working to prevent and investigate drug crime in the Dublin West and Dublin North garda divisions. This affects all areas served by the garda stations in Blanchardstown, Finglas, Cabra, Santry, Ballymun, Coolock, Malahide, Raheny, Clontarf, Howth, Skerries and Lusk.
According to Cllr Chambers, the Dublin North division has lost half of its drugs gardaí since 2011, cut from 32 to 16. Meanwhile 11 gardaí have been pulled from the garda drugs unit in Dublin West, slashed from 35 officers in 2011 to 24 last year.
