Department of Health
376. To ask the Minister for Health when Mayo University Hospital will receive the modular unit for the overcrowded emergency department; if it is in the capital plan for 2019 or 2020; and the estimated cost of same. [9495/19]
My Department and the Health Service Executive are currently engaged in a process to finalise the HSE Capital Plan for 2019. The HSE Capital Plan will determine the projects that can progress in 2019 and beyond having regard to the total available capital funding and the relevant priority of each project.
All Health capital projects, currently at various stages of development, such as the project at Mayo University Hospital, are included as part of this process. Once the HSE has finalised its Capital Plan for 2019, it will then be submitted to me for consideration.
