An independent report on the development of the radiation oncology services of Ireland's South Eastern Health Board (SEHB) should be ready for consideration by the government within around seven weeks and will then be published. So said health minister Micheal Martin, following a meeting last week with authorities from Waterford, aimed at outlining the priorities for developing the services.
