The reply is positive but lacks one very important thing and that is timelines. What I need is dates.I am aware the role has been advertised externally and that there is interest in it. I am also aware there is a facility where the unit can be housed but we need dates. When can we expect this to happen?

I am a little concerned the unit will support only 30 people. Many more than 30 in County Clare must travel long distances for dialysis. Perhaps the Minister of State will relay that to the Minister also. Perhaps there is a misprint in the reply. I realise the Minister of State is just reading it on the Minister's behalf. I assume that many more than 30 will be accommodated in the facility.
