Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Varadkar: It is impossible for me to comment on allegations of cover-ups without knowing the specifics or what evidence the Deputy has. If he has evidence to support his claims, I ask him to make it available to the relevant authorities. To clarify, in case it was not clear from my original response, I do not have and have never had any role in the appointment of hospital managers.

Catherine Connolly: I understand the seriousness of the issue but Deputy O'Donoghue has said quite categorically that documents were tampered with. I presume he means to say "allegedly". I ask the Deputy to be careful.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (24 Nov 2022)

Richard O'Donoghue: We will say "allegedly" for the moment but, if the Tánaiste will agree to meet with me personally, I may be able to update him further.

Catherine Connolly: That is okay. It was just important to say that.

Pearse Doherty: This week, Mr. Asadullah Aslam, a consultant urologist at Letterkenny University Hospital, LUH, resigned his position in public practice. He said he made his decision as a result of impossible working conditions at LUH. This has come as a shock. It is really troubling and saddening for patients to lose such an experienced healthcare professional. It is a worrying time for them with...

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I am very sorry to hear that consultant in Letterkenny, Mr. Aslam, has resigned. I am sure the position will be readvertised. A hospital of Letterkenny University Hospital's size should have a good urology service. I absolutely agree with that. Again, it is very difficult for me to comment on the details of any individual's employment but I will certainly make sure the Minister for Health...

Pearse Doherty: I appreciate that.

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: Next week, the Labour Party will bring forward a Private Members' motion on the issue of drugs and the decriminalisation of the drug user. The Government has promised a citizens' assembly on drugs for early next year. Is the Tánaiste in a position to clarify when the proposed citizens' assembly on drugs will take place? It is needed. In many communities, the drugs crisis is...

Frank Feighan: A citizens' assembly, as committed to under the programme for Government, is being initiated and is due to happen early in the new year. Preparations are ongoing.

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (24 Nov 2022)

Cian O'Callaghan: It appears from the Tánaiste's comments that he is not aware of how seriously the housing disaster is affecting people. Is he not aware that Dublin is the most expensive capital city in the European Union in which to rent according to the OECD and EUROSTAT? Since this Government took office, rents and house prices have reached record levels, as have the number of people living in...

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I am very aware that rents are extremely high not just in Dublin, but across Ireland, and that we compare unfavourably with most other European capital cities.

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (24 Nov 2022)

Cian O'Callaghan: All of them.

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Varadkar: Perhaps it is all. I am not sure about London, which is still part of Europe, although let us not go there. We all agree that rents in Ireland and in Dublin are unacceptably high. What can we do about it? A rent credit will kick in within the next few weeks. This will put €1,000 back into the pocket of the average single renter and €2,000 into the pockets of a couple. That...

Richard Boyd Barrett: In the last few hours, thejournal.iereported that Irish troops were being assessed by NATO assessors in the uplands of north Cork, between Mitchelstown and Fermoy. They were being assessed by a US Navy commander, Sam Mason, who is part of the NATO command. Very worryingly, Commandant Daire Roache explained that this is "part of a program that is for partner nations within NATO." Every...

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputy for raising this important issue. I know he is doing a lot of work as an advocate to highlight this matter. COPD, formerly known as emphysema or bronchitis, has a considerable impact on the quality of life of patients, families and carers. The course of the disease involves ongoing medical care and, in the case of certain patients, frequent hospital admissions. It is...

Denis Naughten: Before the pandemic, respiratory consultations made up 15% of GP attendances. While respiratory diseases account for less than 6% of inpatient discharges, they account for more than 12% of the bed days used in our hospitals. The developments in the CDM programme are welcome for people with conditions such as asthma and COPD but the difficulty is what happens when GPs makes that referral,...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Varadkar: The idea is to manage COPD, diabetes, hypertension, heart failure, and other chronic illnesses in the community, insofar as is possible. If those diseases are well managed in the community, and they can be in the majority of cases, the number of hospital admissions will be very low. However, there will always be people who need specialist care and need to see a consultant or be admitted to...

Richard O'Donoghue: As the proposed next Taoiseach of this country, I want the Tánaiste to sort out the mess in University Hospital Limerick, UHL. He appointed the management of this hospital and he has a duty of care to the people of Limerick and the mid-west region to get it sorted. Many people who attend UHL do not have the option of private healthcare and are unable to commute to other counties for...
