Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Healthcare Infrastructure Provision (3 Dec 2021)

Stephen Donnelly: It is recognised that the current elective care capacities do not meet current demand and there will be even greater demand for elective care services in the future. Incremental refinements to the current public hospital network will not, I think we can all agree, be sufficient to meet this demand by themselves. The electives proposal has guided the work of the elective hospitals oversight...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Healthcare Infrastructure Provision (3 Dec 2021)

Thomas Gould: The Minister is saying he received a proposal in September. This is December and it still has not been approved. This is urgent. A site should be specifically set out in the PBC. Why is there a delay in announcing it? It should say where the potential site is. Where is the information for people? I ask that this hospital be based on the north side of Cork. The people of the north side...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Primary Care Centres (3 Dec 2021)

Joe Carey: Sixmilebridge is a really important project. It has met with some hitches and has been re-advertised. Can the Minister give a detailed explanation of the next steps and when we can expect movement on that site? Will he give more detail on the sites that are planned for Ennistymon and Kilrush? Kilrush has experienced a number of glitches over the years. I would appreciate an explanation...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Primary Care Centres (3 Dec 2021)

Stephen Donnelly: With Ennistymon, a number of price proposals have been received and the HSE's estates division is engaging with the promoter of the top-ranked proposal. It is hoped that a firm proposal to meet HSE requirements can be agreed and progressed. On Kilrush, a review of the current facilities and the overall accommodation requirements for the area is due to be undertaken. We will seek a more...

Legislative Measures

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Legislative Measures (3 Dec 2021)

Seán Haughey: 102. To ask the Minister for Health the status of the Mental Health Act 2001; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [59234/21]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Legislative Measures (3 Dec 2021)

Dara Calleary: My apologies; I thought a message had gone to the Chair. The mental health Bill which the Minister of State is working on will be the first in two decades. I seek a progress update on it. What are the Minister of State's thoughts on the legislation? I would like information on the resourcing plans to go with it.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Legislative Measures (3 Dec 2021)

Mary Butler: In 2015, Government decided to draft a general scheme of a Bill to amend the Mental Health Act 2001 in line with the 165 recommendations of the 2015 expert group review report. Among the expert group recommendations were proposals on revised criteria for detention, updated definitions of mental disorder and voluntary and involuntary patients, the introduction of guiding principles,...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Legislative Measures (3 Dec 2021)

Dara Calleary: I want to acknowledge the Minister of State's work on this and in the whole area since she took up the role. Since 2001, there has been a sea change around the understanding, treatment and acceptance of mental health issues. We still have a long way to go but let us hope that the legislation reflects that sea change, the change in treatments and the fact that people have greater power and...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Legislative Measures (3 Dec 2021)

Mary Butler: A formal Bill will be drafted by the Office of the Attorney General. I expect to introduce the legislation to the Oireachtas as early as possible in 2022. Updating the Mental Health Act is a priority for the Government and for me. I am glad that the Deputy mentioned detention for those under 18 years. I understand that 27 people under the age of 18 have been admitted to an adult...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Legislative Measures (3 Dec 2021)

Dara Calleary: I welcome the Minister of State's clarification but I think it should be specific to particular scenarios and not a general policy. We have all seen Bills pass through with the best of intentions. Will the money go with the Bill? I know the Minister of State secured huge investment in mental health through the Minister, Deputy Stephen Donnelly, in last year's budget. Have those...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Legislative Measures (3 Dec 2021)

Mary Butler: To conclude on the previous point, each case will be taken on a case-by-case basis. I will give another example. A young adult, under 18 years, was admitted to a psychiatric unit in Donegal one night because it was not possible to transfer him to the CAMHS unit in Merlin Park in Galway. Sometimes a decision like that has to be taken. A person might only be admitted to an adult unit for...
