Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

Joan Collins: I thank the secretariat, the Trinity College team, the chairman, Deputy Shortall, and all my colleagues on the committee. There was an arduous 11 months of work on this report. I voted for the report in the committee despite the fact I believe it does not go far enough. Other Deputies think it goes too far. I will continue to support it and I will fight for its implementation in full....

Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

Anne Rabbitte: I compliment all the members of the committee. I was not on the committee, but it is an honour to have an opportunity to speak this evening. Deputy Shortall did a phenomenal job in pulling all of these different personalities together for the past 11 months, starting with four hours twice a week and moving up to 12 hours a week. I thank my colleagues, Deputies Kelleher, Brown and Brassil...

Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

Seán Crowe: Like others, I commend the members of the committee. It is unprecedented what they have done here, with broad political support. Some speakers said we need to take politics out of it. I have a different view in that I think politics is what is going to drive it. I listened to my colleague talk about her father telling her that everything in life is about politics, and that is the...

Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

Bernard Durkan: I thank Deputy Naughton for sharing time. This is an important report and I was happy to be a member of the committee. A tedious process had to be gone through but everybody agreed there was a serious need to overhaul the delivery, manner and methodology of our health services. Many experts gave opinions during the committee's hearings and I acknowledge their work and the work of the...

Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

Pat Buckley: I wish to share time with Deputy Crowe. I welcome the opportunity to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of the committee members and to thank the Oireachtas Library and Research Service, the Trinity College team, the committee secretariat and all the witnesses, stakeholders and groups who gave evidence to the committee. Of course, we must not forget the key driver in all of this,...

Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

Hildegarde Naughton: I wish to share time with Deputy Bernard Durkan. I welcome this debate and the opportunity to discuss the report of the Committee on the Future of Healthcare, of which I was a member. I thank my fellow colleagues who sat on the committee as well as the committee secretariat, the Trinity team and, in particular, the Chairman, Deputy Róisín Shortall, who worked so diligently on the...

Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

Simon Harris: Forty-eight.

Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

Michael Harty: He should visit them in an unsanitised way. He should talk to front-line staff. Quite often, if there is a problem in a hospital, when one talks to the junior staff or the lady who works in the canteen, they can say what is happening in the hospital and, of course, higher management will have its own view. If one talks to people who experience things every day, one will get a far greater...

Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

John McGuinness: I congratulate the Minister on his reappointment. I also congratulate Deputy Shortall, who is passionate about the whole area of health, the committee and all those who contributed to its work, including those outside the House who made their professional services available. That this report has ended up being debated in the House is a first step in recognising that politics needs to be...

Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

Simon Harris: We found that out.

Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

Louise O'Reilly: The air we breathe is political. I had thrown my eyes up to heaven because my father was talking about politics again and he said "Louise, everything is political". We cannot depoliticise health. We can say we want to but we cannot. The Minister described the position very well, and I do not want to put words into his mouth, but he said something along the lines that "if you want to go...

Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

Carol Nolan: I am thankful for the opportunity to speak on this very important issue. Throughout the whole process of the development of this report, Sinn Féin has fought for an adequately resourced public health system that treats people on the basis of health need and not on their ability to pay. We fought to ensure that the future of the health care will be universal health care. I commend the...

Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

Michael Harty: I would also like to echo my appreciation and thanks to the chairman of our committee, Deputy Róisín Shortall, who did an excellent job in keeping us all together and encouraging us throughout the 11 months the committee sat to draw up this report. I also thank the secretarial staff and those who helped us from Trinity College. They were essential in getting this report completed...

Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

Simon Harris: Did the Deputy not hear what I have just said?

Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

Mick Barry: Members of his party signed up to the report and if the Government does not implement it, groups campaigning on the issues in society will take the matter up and apply pressure. I support the idea of an Irish national health service, the cornerstones of which would be public ownership of the hospitals and primary care centres, free at the point of use and funded from a steeply progressive...

Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Thank you, Deputy.

Committee on the Future of Healthcare Report: Motion (22 Jun 2017)

Mick Barry: I will conclude on this sentence. Between 50% and 70% of multinational corporations are paying no corporation tax. There needs to be serious corporation tax and we need a steeply progressive tax system so that it is not ordinary working families and the middle class who pay, but those who can well afford to do so.
