Freagraí scríofa (Ceist ar Minister for Health and Children)

The Health Service Executive (HSE) informed my Department on 4th December that the co-location initiative will not be proceeding at Galway University Hospitals and Letterkenny General Hospital, at this time, as the relevant pre-qualified bidders have decided, for commercial reasons, not to continue in the procurement process in respect of those sites.

The HSE is aware of ongoing private sector interest in these two locations and intends to initiate a further procurement exercise to address the needs of the two hospitals.
