Mayo TD not optimistic that extension to ED at Mayo University Hospital will happen

A Mayo TD claims a recent answer by Health Minister Simon Harris to a parliamentary question put down by her indicates that an extension to the Emergency Department at Mayo University Hospital is unlikely.

Fianna Fail TD Lisa Chambers asked Minister Harris for the details of the extension plans, the areas of the emergency department that will be extended, the expected completion date of the project and the projected costs.

She also asked if there were plans to hire additional staff to cover the additional area.

Deputy Chambers says the response she got was disappointing as not only is there no completed brief for the project but no funding has been allocated for the project in the current capital plan.
