Written answers (Question to Health)

The reply to parliamentary question 57526/21, raised by the Deputy on the 23rd November 2021, sets out the current position in relation to the Keltoi facility, Phoenix Park.

The HSE has advised that there is still a very significant ongoing demand for isolation in this facility and that it will be maintained as a Covid Isolation Facility for the coming winter period.

I have been assured by the HSE that it remains committed to enhancing the residential addiction services in this area including the reopening of the facility once it is no longer required as part of the Covid-19 response.
