Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Bernard Durkan: We dealt with this subject in committee just two days ago. It was a timely visit to the subject. I compliment the Minister and Ministers of State on their work in this area, particularly at that this time and coming as it does in the wake of the difficulties with the reliability of screening and the reviews of screening that did not work out to the benefit of quite a number of women. In...

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Bernard Durkan: I will continue for a couple of minutes, with the permission of the Leas-Cheann Comhairle. It is important that we mark this occasion. It is important that we learn from what has happened in the past. It is equally important that we spend money strategically and redouble our efforts to deal with the issue from here on in. We must encourage investment to deal with it. Cancer care...

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Emer Higgins: I thank Deputy Durkan for sharing time. Members will have to bear with me because I am breathless.

The pandemic has posed many challenges in delivering breast cancer services. Receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer has to be one of...

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Violet Wynne: Long before Covid 19, crucial targets in the national cancer strategy were missed relating to timely access to diagnostics, surgery, radiotherapy and screening. We are in the middle of the State's third national cancer strategy and services are still under-resourced, including breast cancer services. This month, as it is breast cancer awareness month, it would have been prudent, moral...

Duncan Smith: I thank the Whip for allowing this matter to be added to the clár this week.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Pauline Tully: For the last few years I have requested Cavan County Council to light the courthouse in pink for the month of October to highlight breast cancer awareness. The council has always obliged and I am thankful it for that. It was not my initiative but that of a woman with stage-four breast cancer. She is an excellent advocate for breast cancer awareness and is very focused on making women aware...

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Imelda Munster: October is breast awareness month. This is a very positive initiative in terms of promoting awareness and ensuring that everybody is breast aware. Early detection is absolutely vital when it comes to breast cancer because it saves lives. It is very important that everybody knows how and how often to check their breasts, what changes to look out for and what to do if one notices a change....

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Jennifer Murnane O'Connor: I thank the Minister of State for sharing time. Every October, we receive a wealth of information about breast cancer, with people dressed in pink engaged in fundraising and celebrities speaking about their breast cancer experience, but we still see women arriving at clinics not knowing much at all about the disease. One in seven women in Ireland will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Due...

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Patricia Ryan: We are nearing the end of October, which is breast cancer awareness month. Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women, with almost 3,500 women diagnosed every year in Ireland.

Being breast aware and understanding how to check your breasts effectively each month...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (21 Oct 2021)

Peadar Tóibín: The Minister should not listen to the people who tell him that. The policy is dangerous.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (21 Oct 2021)

Eamon Ryan: Every medic to whom I talk says that when there is specialisation, volume is got through and hospitals are designed in order that they have real expertise, there are real benefits and-----

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (21 Oct 2021)

Eamon Ryan: The argument made by the health system - we have to charge the HSE with the optimising of the forms of hospital we have - is that this model 2, and I think Navan hospital is the last of nine hospitals which have been transferred and changed in this way-----

Eamon Ryan: I believe that getting that next tier down of hospitals is critical to getting them expanded and getting them doing more work. That is, I understand, what will happen in Navan, subject to medical advice. Lastly, I do not have the details Deputy Duncan Smith is looking for but I will ask the officials to provide them in order that he has that information.
