I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to debate the following urgent matter, namely, to enable the Government an opportunity to reserve its policy of closing essential services at county hospital under its transformation programme, as exemplified by Louth County Hospital in Dundalk, where all acute medical services are due to be closed by the end of this year, including accident and emergency departments, intensive care units, along with the maternity facilities, the children's ward and the gynaecology ward that have already been closed down, and the need to maintain these health care services to meet the needs of a growing population.
