O’Brien Secures Dáil Adjournment to Discuss Orthopaedic
Sinn Féin TD Jonathan O’Brien has secured an adjournment of the Dáil at 5.30 today to discuss the future of the Orthopaedic Hospital.
Deputy O’Brien said:
“I have secured an adjournment of the Dáil at 5.30pm today so that I can question Minister O’Reilly directly on the floor of the Dail regarding the future of the Orthopaedic Hospital.”
“Specifically, I will be asking the Minister:
· When will the review to determine the future of the Orthopaedic be carried out?
· Who will carry out the review?
· What are the terms of reference?
· Will those carrying out the review speak to workers at the hospital?
There is substantial concern that if the review process is dragged out, construction of the new operating theatres at the South Infirmary will have been completed and that this will pre-determine the outcome. Therefore I will also be requesting the minister to suspend work on the new operating theatres until the review has been completed.”
