Order of Business.

I wish to address the issue raised by Deputy Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin. It was clear this morning when the Minister spoke from New Zealand that she is muddled and mixed up. This is a Minister who does no...More Button

There are approximately 20,000 people around the Tallaght area waiting to know if their X-rays were read properly.More Button

The Taoiseach needs to address this. He is the leader of the country. This morning, he stated he has absolute confidence in the Minister. He must be one of the few left who does. In my view, this ...More Button

This is one scandal too many. I refer to relevant legislation. Where is the whistleblowers legislation?More Button

HIQA was called in back in June. Where is HIQA’s report?More Button

Again, money is more important than people.More Button

Question put: “That the proposal for dealing with No. 18 be agreed to.”
No IndicatorVoted No More Button

Me thinks the lady doth protest too much.More Button

It is a cover-up.More Button

Just the ones the Government does not like.More Button

Will he develop a legal problem too?More Button

Given the Taoiseach has stated he has confidence in the Minister for Health and Children, perhaps he will tell us the reason the Health Information and Quality Authority, HIQA, did not inform her in J...More Button

It is not credible that HIQA did not inform the Minister——More Button

That may be so but——More Button

——the Minister needs to come back immediately——More Button

I put it to the Ceann Comhairle that if a whistleblower had not given this story to Mr. Fergal Bowers and he had not broken it, we still would not know about it.More Button

The reality is that the Minister needs to come back to the House to address this question.More Button

The Taoiseach of this country said he has confidence in the Minister for Health and Children. I say the remainder of the country does not and that she should resign.More Button

This is one scandal too many.More Button

How many people have suffered?More Button

People have died and people have suffered because of Portlaoise, the north-east, Galway and Limerick.More Button

This is one scandal too many.More Button

When will the whistleblowers charter be introduced? When will the legislation promised in the programme for Government, which the Taoiseach and Minister for Health and Children appear to be putting o...More Button

I say to the Ceann Comhairle——More Button

——that thousands of people in this country are being abused by our health service, which is being mismanaged——More Button

——-by an incompetent, lethargic, detached Minister for Health and Children who should be gone.More Button

Private Notice Questions - Hospital Services.

Asked the minister: if she will explain the failure to have X-rays read by a consultant radiologist at Tallaght hospital, Dublin 24, from 2005 to 2009; the way she was not informed by the Health Information and Quality ...More Button

HIQA was told there were only 4,000 X-rays involved.More Button

It always was.More Button

I shall endeavour to do my best. I will acknowledge that Deputy Rabbitte is Rabbitte by name but not rabbit by nature. I would point out to the Minister of State that patients come first.More Button

Free of charge, to boot. This is a very serious matter. We have had scandal after scandal in this country. Patients have suffered. Patients have died. Families have suffered. The position is that...More Button

Excuse me, I want to remind the Minister of State of what he said. I did not hear an apology to the family of the patient who died, the persons whose delayed diagnosis may have impaired their recover...More Button

I would like the Minister of State to answer my questions, particularly those on hospitals.More Button

Can he assure the House that the aforesaid practices are not ongoing?More Button

Unnecessary debts are something to be scandalised about. The Minister of State should make no mistake about it.More Button

I thank the Minister of State for noticing.More Button

I never mentioned “this debt” in particular but said debts are a matter of scandal.More Button

As careful as the Minister of State is.More Button

If the Minister of State were more careful about patient care and the care of children, we would have made much more progress.More Button

Will the Minister of State tell us about the hospitals I mentioned? Is he not supposed to answer the questions I put?More Button

Never in a month of Sundays.More Button
