Public Accounts Committee

Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (Resumed)

10:30 am

Mr. Paul Reid:

We provided the total cost of PPE and the total cost of realisable value at the year end of certain stock items. We provided a cost of €64 million which relates to suits but, instead, we will use gowns. There are two points to be made. We will revert with a summary table of PPE in stock that cannot be used. Nobody should ever lose sight of the challenges to which our teams were working across the board and how this health system punched well above its weight, with the support of our international ambassadors, IDA Ireland and many agencies of the State.
