Cancer sufferer John Wall (above) has secured a meeting with the Minister for Health
John Wall has been living with Stage 4 prostrate cancer for the past two years.
Over the last few weeks, Mr Wall has been tweeting about how his emergency medical card had been revoked eight months after he received it, despite the Department of Health website previously claiming such cards would be valid for 18 months.
Mr Wall, an air traffic controller at Shannon Airport, complained to the Ombudsman Peter Tyndall and recently claimed the office attempted to close his case without advising him or addressing his concerns.
And he kept on tweeting, gathering followers with every tweet.
Yesterday John was told how he now has a meeting with the Minister for Health Simon Harris will take place next month, the Office of the Ombudsman is now carrying out a complete review and all his complaints have been upheld.
