Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Children's Hospital report should be published immediately and referred to Oireachtas Committee – Ó Caoláin

Sinn Féin Health & Children spokesperson Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD has called for the immediate publication of the Meridian Productivity report on the three children's hospitals in Dublin.

He said:

“We are relying on media reports of the Meridian Productivity report on the three children's hospitals in Dublin. If media reports are correct then there are very serious issues being raised about the management of operating theatres in the children's hospitals. If children are being forced to wait longer than necessary for operations then that is totally unacceptable and must be addressed urgently.

“Health Minister James Reilly has seen and commented on the report but the rest of us are being left in the dark. He should publish the report right away. As soon as the new Oireachtas Health Committee is established this report should be referred to it.” ENDS
