Topical Issue Debate (Resumed)
Hospital Accommodation Provision
I again thank all the Deputies who spoke very passionately of their concerns about University Hospital Limerick with facts and figures. I assure them I have taken a number of notes and what I have missed I will get tomorrow from the Official Report. I assure them that I will raise their concerns, including the point about the modular units, as soon as I can with the Minister, Deputy Harris. The point about the modular units may be of significant help in the coming months. I will also raise with the Minister the request that the mid-west be prioritised, particularly coming into 2019 with some more units becoming available, whether it be through modular units or opening up some of the beds in the units that are not available. I will raise all these points with the Minister as soon as I can.
