Dáil Éireann Debate
46. Mrs. Geoghegan-Quinn asked the Minister for Health if his attention has been drawn to the current difficulties in the maternity gynaecological department of University College Hospital, Cork; the steps, if any, he proposes to take to resolve the difficulties; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [13980/95]
Minister for Health (Mr. Noonan,: Limerick East): I am aware of the difficulties in Cork city regarding maternity and neo-natal services and for some time the Department has had ongoing consultations with the agencies concerned on this matter. Earlier this year, I requested that these agencies enter into round table consultations to agree on a set of proposals to resolve the difficulties.
I await the outcome of these consultations which I understand are nearing completion. On receipt of these proposals I will then be in a position to proceed with the necessary steps for the development of the maternity and neo-natal services in Cork.
