Mr. Paul Reid:

Deputy Munster is correct: we want to make sure that we have very significant learnings and there is a very thorough process in place. I do not stand over where things have gone wrong. I am the first to go out to publicly apologise on behalf of the HSE. It is quite right that we should.

I agree with Deputy Munster that our front-line workers have done us proud. Equally, managers and administrators do us proud every day across the country.
