Public Accounts Committee
Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (Resumed)
Mr. Stephen Mulvany:
The reality is that the public nursing homes incurred additional costs, which are also set out in the annual financial statements. Their other fixed costs were of the order of €55 million to €57 million, up from about €22 million or €23 million the previous year. They incurred additional costs because their occupancy levels would have fallen. I do not have information on the value for money report.
