My Department has recently met with the Eastern Regional Health Authority, ERHA, and local representatives to discuss this project. I fully appreciate the anxiety of the local community regarding the upgrading of this facility. My Department, in conjunction with the Department of Finance is examining this particular proposal in the context of an overall review of capital priorities for 2004 and beyond. This review will be completed as soon as possible. My Department will continue to liaise closely with the ERHA in relation to progressing this project.
