Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh (Atógáil) - Priority Questions (Resumed): Health Services Staff (29 Feb 2024)

David Cullinane: Earlier this week, I raised with the Taoiseach and, I think, the Minister the issue of some healthcare professionals and allied professionals who are receiving letters about their annual leave prospects informing them these will be constrained because of the recruitment embargo. As the Minister knows, I am not a supporter of this embargo. How long will it last, what are the current ceilings...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh (Atógáil) - Priority Questions (Resumed): Health Services Staff (29 Feb 2024)

David Cullinane: This is the first time the Minister, or anyone in Government, has accepted that this pause, or what many would call an embargo, is, as he puts it, causing real pressures in hospitals. Every time we have raised this until now, we have received a completely different response, which is to say there is nothing to see here and it is not having an impact. I raised these precise issues in recent...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh (Atógáil) - Priority Questions (Resumed): Health Services Staff (29 Feb 2024)

David Cullinane: I do not see it is a case of either-or. We should always challenge the healthcare system.

My understanding is - the Minister often boasts about it and I accept it is an achievement - that the net increase...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Hospital Waiting Lists (29 Feb 2024)

David Cullinane: People will be wary of promises made, such as those that were made to children with scoliosis. I accept, however, the Minister's statement that this is a target and that everything needs to be done to ensure we reach it. It the Sláintecare goal and we have to implement it. There are still far too many children waiting beyond the Sláintecare targets. There are 9,910 children on...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Hospital Waiting Lists (29 Feb 2024)

David Cullinane: We all accept - I certainly do - that each and every hospital should comply with data sharing. It is very important for the health system generally and for clinicians to have data across all hospitals. It is also important for policy and the wider health services in terms of the Department, the HSE and the political system. I agree with that. The difficulty with pausing capital...
