Questions (359)

Willie O'Dea

Question:

359. Deputy Willie O'Dea asked the Minister for Health the reason a site for a primary care centre at Hassetts Cross, County Limerick was initially approved by the HSE and then rejected; if his attention has been drawn to the fact that this contract was subsequently retendered and granted to a company comprised of former HSE executives and employees; if his attention has been further drawn to the fact that the successful company does not own the sites indicated and that neither of them are currently for sale; if the successful tender by the company meets the tender criteria in particular that its supporting doctors' patients must be primarily resident within the designated area; if he will direct the HSE to publish a list of the supporting doctors; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

As the HSE has responsibility for the provision, along with the maintenance and operation of Primary Care Centres and other Primary Care facilities, the Executive has been asked to reply directly to the Deputy.
