Recently my Department gave approval to the Southern Health Board to proceed with an extension to the existing car park at Tralee General Hospital. The new facility is a self-financing initiative proposed by the board and did not require the provision of additional funding by my Department. I welcome the introduction of this much needed facility at the hospital.
