Mr. Jim Curran:

In Cork, apart from the facility in CUH, the other one is the St. Michael's unit in Mercy University Hospital, which requires significant upgrade work to bring it up to an adequate standard. We built units 20 years ago with multiple-bed rooms. Most of the upgraded units will have single rooms for patients.
