Paul Murphy


593. Deputy Paul Murphy asked the Minister for Health if his attention has been drawn to the fact that fathers are being denied access to attend 12-week scans at the National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street, in cases in which partners are fully vaccinated and have no Covid-19 symptoms; the reason partners have been refused access given the advice in national media that partners can attend all pregnancy related appointments; the steps that will be taken to ensure this does not reoccur; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

As this is a service matter, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond to the Deputy directly, as soon as possible.
