Emergency Bed Capacity: Statements (24 Jun 2020)

Thomas Gould: I intend to speak for three minutes to allow the Minister a minute to respond. If he does not have enough time to respond he might write to me with the answers.

Emergency Bed Capacity: Statements (24 Jun 2020)

Simon Harris: Sure.

Emergency Bed Capacity: Statements (24 Jun 2020)

Thomas Gould: The matter of accident and emergency department capacity is now crucial. I was elected by the people of Cork North-Central to fight against and reverse the neglect of the north side of Cork city. For 20 years a new hospital has been planned for Cork and there were meant to be numerous announcements about this. There was supposed to be an announcement last year, either before or after...

Emergency Bed Capacity: Statements (24 Jun 2020)

Maurice Quinlivan: The Minister will not be surprised that I raise the matter of University Hospital Limerick, as 2019 was a really difficult year in the hospital. There were 13,941 people on trolleys in 2019, which was an increase of 22% on the terrible year of 2018, when 11,000 were on trolleys there. In a recent interview in the Limerick Post, the chief executive officer of University Hospital Limerick was...

Emergency Bed Capacity: Statements (24 Jun 2020)

Brendan Smith: Through parliamentary questions and in various health-related debates in this House, I raised with the Minister on several occasions the need to upgrade and extend the emergency department at Cavan General Hospital. For a considerable time there has been a yearly increase in attendance at the hospital, which covers counties Cavan and Monaghan. Patients also attend from parts of Leitrim,...

Emergency Bed Capacity: Statements (24 Jun 2020)

Cathal Crowe: Since my speaking time is limited, I would appreciate it if the Minister could respond in writing to my questions. I wish to query the HSE's capital infrastructure expenditure, specifically on pre-hospital and acute hospital services. The expenditure on Ennis general hospital this year for the provision of an off-site outpatient unit on the Kilrush Road will be €600,000. This is...

Emergency Bed Capacity: Statements (24 Jun 2020)

Louise O'Reilly: I am sharing my time with Deputies Gould and Quinlivan, both of whom are to have four minutes. I will cede three of my seven minutes to the Minister because I want to use some of my time to hear a response. I believe the Ceann Comhairle said we are entitled to a response, but maybe not an answer. I feel like I have just stumbled in to some kind of job interview process. I do not know...

Emergency Bed Capacity: Statements (24 Jun 2020)

Stephen Donnelly: I am sharing time with Deputies Butler, Brendan Smith and Crowe. This session concerns emergency bed capacity and, for me, how we can avoid an escalating trolley crisis every year. Before Covid-19 arrived, many of us were debating the trolley crisis in the Chamber. More than 100,000 people were on trolleys on last year, 13,000 of whom were on trolleys for more than 24 hours. Elderly men...

Emergency Bed Capacity: Statements (24 Jun 2020)

Mary Butler: Before the impact of Covid-19 on our health service became apparent, significant additional capacity was required in all aspects of care to provide access to high-quality services and to meet the needs of our growing population. I have raised for the past four years the issues of late discharges of care and the number of bed days lost because we were slow in discharging people, albeit...

Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil (24 Jun 2020)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Before adjourning, the House must agree the arrangements for next week's proceedings of the Special Committee on Covid-19 Response. Those arrangements are notified in the report of the Business Committee for next week's business, which was circulated this evening. Can I take those arrangements as read and can I take it they are agreed? Agreed. Furthermore, I wish to announce for the...

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: I call on the Minister, Deputy Harris, to make his opening statement. I welcome the Minister. He has ten minutes.

Emergency Bed Capacity: Statements (24 Jun 2020)

Simon Harris: I welcome the opportunity to discuss this matter in the House but, in doing so, I have to take the opportunity, once again, to update the House on Covid-19, our response to it and its impact on the health service because it very much goes to the heart of how we deliver health services in the coming days, weeks and months. First, and most importantly, I want to express my sympathy to the...

Covid-19 (Measures to Protect Victims of Domestic Violence): Statements (24 Jun 2020)

Catherine Connolly: I thank the Minister for a copy of his speech. It is helpful when it is set out in written form. I will take up a theme raised by Deputy Bríd Smith. As I listened to the debate, I went to my office and came back to the Chamber because I thought my memory was not serving me right. I went back to the Kilkenny incest case and the report from 1993. One of the comments that stood out for...

Covid-19 (Measures to Protect Victims of Domestic Violence): Statements (24 Jun 2020)

Marian Harkin: Listening to the debate, I have heard several Deputies speak of the rise in domestic violence incidents since the outbreak of Covid-19, here and globally. The increase here has been 25%. The UN Secretary-General spoke of the horrifying global surge in domestic violence. We might ask what is causing this increase. There are risk factors such as stress at home, losing a job, alcohol abuse,...

Covid-19 (Measures to Protect Victims of Domestic Violence): Statements (24 Jun 2020)

Richard O'Donoghue: I am sharing time with Deputy Mattie McGrath. There has been a 25% increase in domestic violence since the start of Covid-19 from the Garda figures. The figure from the national helpline of Safe Ireland is 39%. Safe Ireland has stated that the Department of Justice and Equality and the Garda were phenomenal during the Covid crisis and I commend them on that. They are now dealing with an...

Covid-19 (Measures to Protect Victims of Domestic Violence): Statements (24 Jun 2020)

Charles Flanagan: On Garda resources, I acknowledge the tremendous work on the part of the Garda Síochána during the course of the emergency which, as the Deputy acknowledges, has been lauded by many of the non-governmental organisations and indeed by the population generally. As Minister for Justice and Equality, I have been pleased to preside over a situation where we have managed to invest record...
