Question:

620. Deputy Luke 'Ming' Flanagan asked the Minister for Health if he will investigate the priority of works proposed for St. Patrick's Hospital, Carrick-on-Shannon, County Leitrim, in view of the fact that the hospital does not have a call bell system and under the current phased programme or works to the hospital it is scheduled for the fourth phase; if he will reconsider this schedule and ask that call bells be given a higher priority and brought up to an earlier phase of the programme as communication between the patients and staff is vital to the well-being of the patients; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
