Pauline Tully: 95. To ask the Minister for Health his plans to address the slow pace of implementing Progressing Disability Services and children’s disability networks; his plans to address the challenges this has presented for parents of children with disabilities; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [59113/21]

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Disability Services (3 Dec 2021)

Thomas Gould: As the Minister will probably know, today is International Day of Persons with Disabilities. I want to know how he plans to address the slow pace of implementing and processing disability services, and children's disability networks. I want to know how he plans to address the challenges this presents for parents of children with disabilities. Finally, I ask him to make a statement here on...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Disability Services (3 Dec 2021)

Mary Butler: My colleague and fellow Minister of State, Deputy Rabbitte, sends her apologies as she is currently in the Seanad and was not in a position to take this question. The implementation of Progressing Disability Service for Children and Young People, PDS, programme is an agreed Government and HSE policy. This policy supports the reconfiguration of children's disability services to provide...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Disability Services (3 Dec 2021)

Thomas Gould: Last month, figures were released to me that show the following: 853 children await occupational therapy in Cork north Lee in my own constituency; over 200 children have waited two years or more; and some children have waited three and four years. I have also had it confirmed for me that out of the three funded occupational therapist positions in Cork north Lee 1.5 persons have been on...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Health Services (3 Dec 2021)

Peadar Tóibín: 92. To ask the Minister for Health if his Department has conducted a study on the impact of lockdowns on cancer services including diagnostic and treatment services; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [59767/21]

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Health Services (3 Dec 2021)

Peadar Tóibín: I read the annual report of National Cancer Registry Ireland, NCRI, during the week. I am sure the Minister has also read it. It stated that there would be a shortfall of between 10% and 14% in the number of cancer diagnoses for 2020. As somebody who had cancer during the first wave of the Covid pandemic, I am deeply worried that there is a significant problem with people not getting a...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Health Services (3 Dec 2021)

Stephen Donnelly: I share Deputy Tóibín's concern, as do the team running the national cancer control programme, NCCP, the Department and the HSE. The Department and the national cancer control programme are systematically studying the impact of Covid-19 on cancer services through data monitoring and monthly review meetings. I am sure I would be able to get the Deputy a detailed note on that if he...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Health Services (3 Dec 2021)

Peadar Tóibín: Today, 480 people will be diagnosed with cancer and 24 people will die of cancer. It is one of the biggest threats to human life in this State. Timely diagnosis can and will make all the difference for many people. The Irish Cancer Society says that it is worried that many people have cancer and do not know it. This will impact on their outcomes. The Marie Keating Foundation anticipates...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Health Services (3 Dec 2021)

Stephen Donnelly: I agree with all of that. In terms of treatment, the numbers are as follows. The number of patients receiving chemotherapy this year is 95% of the number for 2019. The number of patients receiving radiation oncology in the period from January to August is 85% of the equivalent number for 2019. The equivalent figure for surgical oncology for January to August is 80% of the 2019 figure....

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Health Services (3 Dec 2021)

Peadar Tóibín: I understand this is a difficult situation for the Government. Nobody expects it to be able to deal with the issue 100%. We talk about capacity ad nauseumin this Chamber but there is a difference of 260 between the number of ICU beds there should be and the number there are. There are 112 to 117 people in ICU beds with Covid at the moment. The lack of capacity is a bigger threat to ICU...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Health Services (3 Dec 2021)

Stephen Donnelly: I am very happy to give that commitment. That step change is already under way. In the last year, there was a record increase in the number of hospital beds. Very shortly, we will have added approximately 1,000 hospital beds. To the Deputy's point, there are more than 500 Covid patients in hospital at the moment. We have added twice that number of beds in the last year. We are in the...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Health Services (3 Dec 2021)

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Health Services (3 Dec 2021)

Hospital Procedures

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Hospital Procedures (3 Dec 2021)

David Cullinane: 93. To ask the Minister for Health the number of hospital appointments including but not limited to elective surgeries which have been cancelled due to capacity constraints and particularly the lack of critical care beds; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [59112/21]

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Hospital Procedures (3 Dec 2021)

David Cullinane: This question relates to the cancellation of outpatient hospital appointments and scheduled care and treatment. I am specifically looking for the number of hospital appointments, whether for consultations with a consultant or procedures, that have been cancelled over the course of the last year.

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Hospital Procedures (3 Dec 2021)

Stephen Donnelly: I thank the Deputy. I looked into this and was advised that the HSE does not collect that specific information centrally. When I was preparing for this session, I noted that the Deputy's direct question had not been answered so I asked the Department to see if that information could be collected. The HSE collects data on cancellations locally but not centrally. Arguably, that is something...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Child Poverty (3 Dec 2021)

Roderic O'Gorman: I see the successor strategy to Better Outcomes, Brighter Futures as being hugely important. There is always the decision of whether to go narrow and centralise the decision-making process or make it broad and ensure all parts of government are acting towards it. That is that balancing element. Better Outcomes, Brighter Futures, the policy framework that is ending now, has been really...
