Emergency Budget: Motion (Resumed) [Private Members] (28 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: We are calling on the Government to introduce an emergency budget to deal with the rising cost of living. None of us should have to make a speech outlining the challenges facing families. We see the evidence of that every day. Many of the people to whom I speak say they are at their wit's end and do not know how they will pay the next bill. They are dreading the postman coming up the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005 (Section 95(3)) (Variation of Title: Chiropodist) Regulations 2022 (1 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: There will be two sessions to this meeting. In this session, we are meeting officials from the Department of Health to discuss the order passed by the Dáil on 31 May and by the Seanad on 24 May on the proposal that both Houses approve the following regulations in draft: Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005 (Section 95(3)) (Variation of Title: Chiropodist) Regulations 2022. ...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005 (Section 95(3)) (Variation of Title: Chiropodist) Regulations 2022 (1 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: I thank Ms Fantini and open up the debate to questions.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005 (Section 95(3)) (Variation of Title: Chiropodist) Regulations 2022 (1 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: Clearly, as there is an anomaly whereby one is called a chiropodist and the other a podiatrist so the legislation fills the gap. Am I correct?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005 (Section 95(3)) (Variation of Title: Chiropodist) Regulations 2022 (1 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: Would this have come from a complaint made by a customer?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005 (Section 95(3)) (Variation of Title: Chiropodist) Regulations 2022 (1 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: The anecdotal evidence is that there is a shortage, depending on who one talks to.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005 (Section 95(3)) (Variation of Title: Chiropodist) Regulations 2022 (1 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: On the timescale for registration and checking qualifications, how long does that take?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005 (Section 95(3)) (Variation of Title: Chiropodist) Regulations 2022 (1 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: Yes. If somebody from abroad wants to register, is it a lengthy period, a couple of weeks or months?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005 (Section 95(3)) (Variation of Title: Chiropodist) Regulations 2022 (1 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: The other matter is the importance of diabetics and so forth getting their feet checked. Again, the anecdotal evidence I have is that this is a challenge depending on where one lives. In rural areas there is probably a smaller chance of chiropodists being in those areas. Even in urban areas, however, and in Tallaght in my constituency, I have heard of people having difficulty trying to...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005 (Section 95(3)) (Variation of Title: Chiropodist) Regulations 2022 (1 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: Okay.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005 (Section 95(3)) (Variation of Title: Chiropodist) Regulations 2022 (1 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: Finally, you mentioned that there was one successful case in respect of a person who was not registered. Are cases such as that prioritised in the courts system, as I imagine it would be if it was a doctor? Is it similar? I am not speaking specifically to that case.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005 (Section 95(3)) (Variation of Title: Chiropodist) Regulations 2022 (1 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: Again, I know nothing about the system. If the individual is to continue operating during two years of court proceedings, however, that could be quite lucrative. The other area that was pointed out was practitioners not using the title. I assume they could call themselves foot care practitioners or whatever. That is where the wriggle room is within the law, but I do not see that could be...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005 (Section 95(3)) (Variation of Title: Chiropodist) Regulations 2022 (1 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: Are there standards for the profession arising from the legislation or is that separate work for the organisation that organises chiropodists? If someone goes in for an appointment and it lasts ten minutes while another person goes in for an hour, they will still be charged the same amount. Again, I have no experience in this area but I am told that some practices operate like factories and...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005 (Section 95(3)) (Variation of Title: Chiropodist) Regulations 2022 (1 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: That is all the questions we have. I really appreciate the witnesses coming in and giving us their time. We will now go into private session for a few minutes to wait for our next round of witnesses.
