737. To ask the Minister for Health the progress within the Saolta group to progress the development of the acute stroke unit in Letterkenny University Hospital; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9568/20]
I am advised by the Saolta University Health Care Group that staff have been recruited in line with the funding allocation for the development of a Stroke Unit at Letterkenny University Hospital.
The designation of a the Stroke Unit is being impacted by COVID-19 requirements. It is hoped that designation will occur later in the year as COVID-19 measures at the hospital evolve.
