There are a lot of deficits. We have no emergency service for adults in Wexford. The hospital intervention service for patients with special needs, requiring anaesthetists to be available, has been reduced to operating one day a week. It is everything. There is no early intervention, which means that we might as well be throwing the €60 million into a black hole. As Deputy Catherine Murphy said, we are always kicking the can down the road and the cost of it is now upwards of €100 million.
