887. To ask the Minister for Health the number of newly qualified doctors at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda as a result of intern posts created in April 2020 which were designed to bolster the health service during an unprecedented pandemic; if he plans to retain all of the newly-qualified doctors and related posts as whole-time equivalents at the stated hospital given the continued seriousness of Covid-19 and the consequent backlog in terms of treatment waiting lists; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
