Limerick TD questions Taoiseach about proposed Limerick surgical hub

Limerick Fianna Fáil TD Willie O'Dea

FIANNA Fáil TD Willie O’Dea has questioned Taoiseach Leo Varadkar in the Dáil about the delivery of the proposed Surgical Hub, due to be located in Limerick.

In September O’Dea was told by the HSE that the project brief had been agreed and a preferred site had been identified.

“What I want to ascertain on behalf of the hard-pressed people of Limerick and surrounding districts is when we are going to see this hub? When is it going to actually be in operation?” he asked.

“We are on the verge of yet another winter of discontent in relation to trolleys, waiting times, and delays in UHL.”

In response, An Taoiseach said he will make inquiries with the Minister for Health.
