Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Integrated Eye Care: Discussion (13 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: I am not undermining the work the witnesses are doing - it is fantastic to see the progress on waiting lists - but I am looking at the waiting lists across the other CHOs. For example, in CHO 6 and CHO 7, there are no adults on waiting lists. Do the witnesses know what the latter are doing? Is it something similar to what the witnesses are doing or are they taking a different approach?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Integrated Eye Care: Discussion (13 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: That is one way of dealing with it.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Integrated Eye Care: Discussion (13 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: My final question relates to CHO 9. Up to quite recently, there was a private clinic in Fairview that was involved in tackling the waiting lists. Has that clinic got any role currently? What led the witnesses to change to a different kind of model?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Integrated Eye Care: Discussion (13 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: Okay. Are there other external providers, apart from Medical Optics?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Integrated Eye Care: Discussion (13 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: But it is a factor in it then. I am sorry, but I thought Professor Keegan was talking about the entirety of optical care-----

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Integrated Eye Care: Discussion (13 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: -----and that the six organisations he referenced were involved in that, but there are then private providers as well.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Integrated Eye Care: Discussion (13 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: But is there a separate funding arrangement between it and the HSE.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Integrated Eye Care: Discussion (13 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: Professor Keegan makes a very strong case for streamlining right across the health service.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Integrated Eye Care: Discussion (13 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: I thank him very much.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Integrated Eye Care: Discussion (13 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: I have a few additional questions. On the issue of the figures, could the breakdown of that €44,000 mentioned be provided?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Integrated Eye Care: Discussion (13 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: It would be great to get more detail because, obviously, there is more involved than is shown by the figures we have received. Is Professor Keegan of the view that this model can be replicated in other parts of the country? Is there much interest from his colleagues throughout the country in doing something like this?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Integrated Eye Care: Discussion (13 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: Obviously, a key part of Dr. Rogers's role as clinical director relates to integration and bringing the various players together. Was there an additional cost in this regard or was the post already in existence? Did the post come with responsibility for integration?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Integrated Eye Care: Discussion (13 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: On costs, one of the things for the RHAs is ensuring population-based funding allocations. Under the existing arrangement, how do the populations of CHO 1, CHO 8 and CHO 9 fare funding-wise for eye services compared with similar populations throughout the rest of the country? There is this perennial problem of postcode lotteries tying into funding. Is it a case that those three CHOs,...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Integrated Eye Care: Discussion (13 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: The asks that our guests set out for us seem quite modest, given that the project is covering three areas. What contact have they had with either the HSE or the Department of Health in the context of a commitment on that funding?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Integrated Eye Care: Discussion (13 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: I just wish to clarify what role the committee might play in terms of urging the Department to accede to that request.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Integrated Eye Care: Discussion (13 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: Yes, over three years.
