An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business
Catherine Byrne (Dublin South Central, Fine Gael)
This issue has been raised a number of times in Topical Issue debates that I have taken on behalf of the Minister for Health, Deputy Harris. I have spoken to the Minister on the matter and there seems to be a lack of communication regarding how this process has developed. I have discussed the concerns raised with the Minister and I understand the patients and their families have been informed that the reason for the transition is to provide better care and improved safety for patients. I will raise the issue again with the Minister when I meet him this afternoon.
