Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Sláintecare Implementation: Discussion (15 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: With regard to future meetings about Sl√°intecare, there are very localised questions. I suggest to members that it is impossible for people coming in to have those answers. There is a mechanism if members want to ask those questions. We are not trying to trip anyone up. It would be much simpler. It is not satisfactory for members to ask questions and people not to have the answers....

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Sláintecare Implementation: Discussion (15 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: On improving healthcare in our regions and communities, we all agree we need to divert more people away from hospital care to a community and home setting. A number of committee members were contacted by, for example, Thrombosis Ireland representatives who raised the issue of people on anticoagulants. They said 700 people are using self-test monitors, while almost 250,000 people throughout...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Sláintecare Implementation: Discussion (15 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: The number of people who are self-testing seems very small. It is 700 people when 250,000 use warfarin. I am just teasing out the logic of it. It would make sense on a preventative basis that the HSE would try to roll that out to that community. Are there any plans to do that?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Sláintecare Implementation: Discussion (15 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: One of the worries I have, and we touched on it earlier, relates to the pilot programmes being put in place in different areas. We rarely ever hear about the successful ones. Scans in nursing homes were mentioned. Some people are worried about regionalisation, going back to the old heath boards structure, and everyone working in silos apart from each other. That is why I am concerned...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Sláintecare Implementation: Discussion (15 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: Does a pilot go on forever? What is the timescale of these if something is working? I remember making reference to a hospital I know where people in their late 70s were presenting with cocaine at the weekends. This was a recurring thing. The hospital came up with an initiative whereby they put someone in who was working with the local drug services. It gave people who were clearly in...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Sláintecare Implementation: Discussion (15 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: The key to this is the regionalisation of staff, resources, investment and services. An audiology unit in Tallaght hospital, for instance, covers Wicklow and Kildare. If you are living in Wicklow town and your child needs to get tested, Tallaght is not local, as such. You could be waiting up to two years to get that child tested. The resources needs to follow. It is part of the challenge...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Sláintecare Implementation: Discussion (15 Jun 2022)

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Sláintecare Implementation: Discussion (15 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: I need to bring the meeting to an end. We are over time.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Sláintecare Implementation: Discussion (15 Jun 2022)

Seán Crowe: I mentioned the audiology unit in Tallaght Hospital. There are 2,500 children involved. Mr. Reid might come back with a note on it. I do not know what the problem is but the average waiting time is 66 weeks. There are some children waiting two years. It would be remiss of me if I did not ask that. I would appreciate a written note at some stage. I thank all the witnesses for their...
