There is a commitment given by the HSE to continue to admit residents unless it is instructed otherwise by HIQA. It is important to be clear on that caveat and qualifier. If a direction is issued by HIQA, that will need to be complied with. We take the HIQA reports and regulations extremely seriously. They are there to protect standards and safeguard residents and staff so it is important that points made and issues raised be addressed.

I look forward to the development of an agreed plan by the HSE. I will certainly play my role, along with the Minister for Health, Deputy Stephen Donnelly, and the Minister of State at the Department of Health, Deputy Butler, in addition to Deputy Kelly and other Deputies, in seeking to advance this over the period ahead.
