I appreciate this is an important issue in Waterford and the south east. The Deputy will be aware of the work being done to construct and fit out the second cath lab in University Hospital Waterford. Obviously, when the laboratory is ready staffing it will be a challenge. Finding staff to staff two cath labs 24-7 will be a real difficulty. It is in large cities and it will certainly be a difficulty in Waterford too.

I cannot make any commitments of the nature the Deputy requested. I do not have the authority to do so. I will certainly let the Minister for Health, Deputy Stephen Donnelly, know that Deputy Shanahan raised the matter again and ask him to speak to the Deputy directly.
