Questions (667)

Clare Daly

Question:

667. Deputy Clare Daly asked the Minister for Health the reason Mallow Hospital will not take children under six years of age given that the South Doc facility only has one night doctor and in the event of a day doctor being late on the shift, potentially has no staff available to deal with medical emergencies; and the steps he intends to take to ensure that children in medical emergencies have access to timely treatment.

In relation to the particular query raised by the Deputy, as this is a service issue, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond directly to the Deputy in this matter.
