Vote 38 - Health (Revised) (30 Jun 2020)

Paul Murphy: I strongly urge the Minister to publish those figures so people can see for themselves to better investigate the situation and to compare it with Britain. I have another question on the pay and treatment of nurses, who have been on the front line over the past while, along with other workers, in the struggle against Covid-19. We know that more than 8,000 healthcare workers have been...

Vote 38 - Health (Revised) (30 Jun 2020)

Stephen Donnelly: In the first instance, the issue being raised with me by nurses and midwives is the full implementation of what was agreed after the strike last year. I joined them on the picket lines and I have no doubt the Deputy joined them on the picket lines as well. We need to look at that first and foremost. I want to be careful about how I say this. I was going to say the primary concern of the...

Vote 38 - Health (Revised) (30 Jun 2020)

Paul Murphy: Most of the healthcare professionals hired during the crisis have been hired on short-term contracts with CPL, a recruitment agency. The former Minister, Deputy Harris, refused to publish the details of that arrangement. Will the Minister publish the details of the arrangement between the State and CPL?

Vote 38 - Health (Revised) (30 Jun 2020)

Stephen Donnelly: If the Deputy does not mind, what I will do is ask for a briefing on why it may or may not be possible to do so. It may be that there are issues of commercial sensitivity involved but I will ask the question.

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Does the Minister have anything else to say in conclusion before we bring the matter to finality?

Vote 38 - Health (Revised) (30 Jun 2020)

Stephen Donnelly: I thank all of the Deputies. It has been a long, detailed and good session and we have touched on many of the issues that have been raised. We have discussed our extraordinary healthcare professionals on the clinical side, the administrative side and the support side in the HSE, the Department and right across the system. There has been wide and deep recognition of the role everybody has...

Vote 38 - Health (Revised) (30 Jun 2020)

Stephen Donnelly: I thank Deputy Collins for raising these issues. Deputy Collins and I were in the Chamber, along with others, discussing this very issue with the INMO during the past ten days. The situation our front-line workers were in was incredibly difficult, and not just front-line workers but also a lot of the management staff and non-clinical staff who were just as essential at keeping everything...

Vote 38 - Health (Revised) (30 Jun 2020)

Paul Murphy: We are here to discuss the question of extra funding. I do not think anyone in the country could dispute the need for extra funding for our health service. That is probably a general truth but it is particularly true at this moment. There are legitimate questions about where the money is going and conditions in our health service. If possible, I want to do back and forth question and...

Vote 38 - Health (Revised) (30 Jun 2020)

Stephen Donnelly: I thank Deputy Murphy. My preference is to start from a position of transparency. We must also be mindful of issues of commercial sensitivity and of protecting individual identities in cases. We all know information has to be withheld in those cases. I am puzzled by the comparisons I have heard and I would need to see the underlying reports. It was alleged earlier on that the cost,...

Vote 38 - Health (Revised) (30 Jun 2020)

Danny Healy-Rae: I too wish the Minister, Deputy Donnelly, all the best in his new job. I look forward to working with him and we will certainly have a lot of things to sort out. I thank the health workers all around the country, but especially in Kerry, the people who worked in the hospitals in Tralee, Cahersiveen, Dingle, Kenmare, Killarney, and indeed, Bantry, which is very close to us and deals with...

Vote 38 - Health (Revised) (30 Jun 2020)

Joan Collins: I watched "Prime Time Investigates" last night and it was harrowing and sad. I wish to express my solidarity with the families of the patients who died and the staff who were with them, who became their carers, who took care of their medical needs, who became their communicators and who literally became their undertakers. That is the role they played over that period and that must be...
