Primary Care Steering Group: Motion

I move:

That Seanad Éireann:

recognises:

- that the parents of children with complex medical needs are best placed to understand their children’s needs and deliver the care required;

- that parents are the voice for their children;

welcomes:

- the increase of services offered by the Department of Health for home care cases for children with complex medical needs;

- the formation of the HSE Primary Care steering group that is developing national policy for these children;

and calls upon the HSE to include a non-HSE parent representative on this Primary Care Steering Group.

The Leas-Chathaoirleach cut me off.

We must do it in sequence.

I second the motion.

Question put and agreed to.
