Peadar Tóibín


954. Deputy Peadar Tóibín asked the Minister for Health the research the HSE has conducted for women who are at least 28 weeks pregnant who work in close contact professions in which social distancing is not possible and health and safety leave is advised at 28 weeks of pregnancy by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, the Royal College of Midwives and the Faculty of Occupational Medicine; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Written answers (Question to Health)

Given the role of the HSE’s National Women and Infants Health Programme in the dissemination of pregnancy related clinical guidelines, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond to the Deputy directly, as soon as possible.
