Joint Committee On Health
Mental Health Services: HSE
I am asking a clear question. I will repeat it. Is it possible for the HSE to provide residential accommodation for people who are now full-time residents of the Owenacurra centre in the vicinity? It must be borne in mind that the centre is at the heart of Midleton. It is next to the Garda barracks and the local supermarket, Hurley's, in the centre of the town. Mr. Fitzgerald is familiar with the facility. Is there a possibility for the HSE to provide residential accommodation near Midleton for those affected by this decision? I refer to something similar to what happened with St. Raphael's, Youghal.
