Joan Collins: I watched "Prime Time Investigates" last night and it was harrowing and sad. I wish to express my solidarity with the families of the patients who died and the staff who were with them, who became their carers, who took care of their medical needs, who became their communicators and who literally became their undertakers. That is the role they played over that period and that must be...

Vote 38 - Health (Revised) (30 Jun 2020)

Verona Murphy: Not at all. I congratulate the Minister on his job, which I am sure he is looking forward to doing. He certainly has the necessary ability and insight, which he displayed as spokesperson over the past number of years. I wish him well and I hope we will work well together. There are some issues that need addressing, particularly in Wexford, and I will get straight to them. The...

Vote 38 - Health (Revised) (30 Jun 2020)

Carol Nolan: I wish the Minister well in his role and every success. It is a challenging portfolio, but I do not doubt that he will be successful and effective. I look forward to engaging with him in a constructive manner and, I hope, finding solutions for some of our ongoing problems. The Revised Estimate being presented to us indicates the staggering levels of funding that are going into the...

David Cullinane: I commend the new Minister and wish him well. I send him my best wishes. Obviously, we want anyone who takes up high office and a Ministry as important as health to succeed. In 2009, I was a member of Waterford City and County Council when a presentation was given to the council by a group of healthcare professionals who were based in University Hospital Waterford, a number of whom were...

Stephen Donnelly: I acknowledge the work that has been done by Deputy Cullinane on this matter. The Deputy and I have been in the Dáil together for many years. I have heard him advocate consistently for this. I appreciate his reference also to Deputy Butler who has advocated and fought very hard on the matter too, as have all the Waterford Deputies. Indeed, we have a new Deputy in this Dáil who...

Mattie McGrath: Are any Deputies wanting to come in from Fine Gael, the Green Party or Páirtí an Lucht Oibre? Goodness, they are all gone to the hills. My list is exhausted here. After that it must be the Social Democrats. No one is offering from the Social Democrats or from People Before Profit. I will call the Deputy from the regional party.

Vote 38 - Health (Revised) (30 Jun 2020)

Niamh Smyth: I too congratulate the new Minister for Health, who was a very able and capable spokesperson for our party for the past four years. I am thrilled to see him in this ministerial position. I was also thrilled to have him in Cavan and Monaghan not that long ago. Then he got the full guided tour of Cavan General Hospital and of the minor injuries unit in Monaghan hospital. As he will be...

Vote 38 - Health (Revised) (30 Jun 2020)

Violet Wynne: I am sharing time with Deputies Ward and Cullinane. I want to raise the ongoing issue of capacity in our health service. Time and time again, we listened to the Minister's predecessor saying that we were investing in our health service. However, this funding never alleviated the pressures on our health services. We in the mid-west are constantly faced with overcrowding, long waiting...

Vote 38 - Health (Revised) (30 Jun 2020)

Stephen Donnelly: I thank the Deputy for raising this issue. I share her views on Spinraza. It is a matter that I and my colleagues in the previous Dáil campaigned hard for. As the Deputy spoke about a specific family, if she provides some more details, we can then get a briefing to her. How we avoid knock-on impacts on our health system because of Covid is a profound and seminal question for...

Mark Ward: After constantly calling for the previous Minister for Health to release Sharing the Vision: A Mental Health Policy for Everyone, I cautiously welcomed the fact that it was finally published just before the previous Government ended. A Vision for Change was a bold document and one of its time. Due to lack of proper investment from previous Governments, however, it was never even close to...

Vote 38 - Health (Revised) (30 Jun 2020)

Paul McAuliffe: Like previous speakers, I congratulate the Minister on his appointment as Minister for Health. I say that, not out of some sense of party loyalty, but because I have seen in a very real way the ability and skill he has applied to the health portfolio as an Opposition spokesperson. I saw it here in the Chamber but more important, I saw it when the Minister came to visit my constituency with...

Stephen Donnelly: I am not sure that there were so many specific questions. In response to what Deputy Flaherty said about orthodontics, it is a major issue that any child would have to wait eight years for orthodontic services. It is a failure on all our parts. Consultant surgeons and dentists tell us it is far cheaper to intervene early because in dentistry in particular early detection and treatment is...
