Leaders' Questions (16 Jan 2018)

Leo Varadkar: In respect of patient experience surveys, when 14,000 Irish patients were asked what they thought of their experience in the health service, never mind what we think, 85% said they had a good or very good experience of our health service. That does not diminish for one second the fact that some patients have a very bad experience of the health service. That is something we need to change....

Brendan Howlin: How many?

Leaders' Questions (16 Jan 2018)

Leo Varadkar: There will also be more staff and money. The increase in the number of beds is happening. I think the figure for this year is 190 additional beds. We do not yet have a figure for next year, but we are working on it as part of the capital plan. There will be more beds this year, as there were last year and the year before. To give the Deputy the figures - in 2017 the number of inpatient...

Leaders' Questions (16 Jan 2018)

Leo Varadkar: We have more staff in the health service. I think the number is now 110,000, up by 10,000 on the figure five years ago. Notwithstanding the problems we are having in recruitment, we now have nearly 10,000 doctors working in the public health service and more consultants than ever before.

Leaders' Questions (16 Jan 2018)

Timmy Dooley: The central spin office is paying off.

Leaders' Questions (16 Jan 2018)

Timmy Dooley: There are more patients on trolleys. What is this about? What is missing?

Leaders' Questions (16 Jan 2018)

Leo Varadkar: The point the Government and I continuously make is not that we do not need more resources but that more resources on their own are clearly not enough. Increased resources have not produced the results we want.

Leaders' Questions (16 Jan 2018)

Brendan Howlin: There is a report in today's edition of The Irish Timesthat emergency care services may be removed from hospitals in the Dublin-Midlands hospital group. I have a simple question to ask. Is that true? On the specific questions I asked, does the Taoiseach accept that there is a need for between 2,500 and 9,000 more beds? Providing 190 additional beds in the coming 12 months will go nowhere...

Leaders' Questions (16 Jan 2018)

Leo Varadkar: We do not have any plan to close any emergency department in the State, not least because to do so properly, one would need to make sure patients would be adequately provided for in the next centre, the new hospital or the adjoining hospital and that they would have the capacity to deal with the additional workload. We saw the difficulties faced by St. Vincent's University Hospital when St....

Leaders' Questions (16 Jan 2018)

Timmy Dooley: Spin.

Leaders' Questions (16 Jan 2018)

Leo Varadkar: When it comes to consultants, I think it was the Hanly report that recommended we needed about 4,000. As that is probably a little out of date at this stage, we will need to update it also. It takes a long time to train a consultant and having trained so long, a lot of them do not want to do certain jobs. We need to be realistic about how many we can recruit on an ongoing basis and...

Leaders' Questions (16 Jan 2018)

Michael Lowry: In the 1970s a group of forward-thinking individuals set up a voluntary committee to meet the needs of children with special needs in south Tipperary who were at home and not receiving an education. The town of Cashel now boasts that it has the invaluable service provided by two special schools, Scoil Chormaic and Scoil Aonghusa. Some 320 special needs pupils from all over County Tipperary...
