I represent the Dún Laoghaire constituency and there are a number of such settings. Caritas Convalescent Centre, in particular, was in the newspapers last week. While it is a private setting and decisions are made independently of the HSE, it would remiss of the State not to have access to those facilities. We must ensure that no other closures will happen because we will need those settings in the next few months.
