A Roscommon TD is concerned that the number of people waiting for a nursing home place under the Fair Deal scheme will rise sharply with the onset of Winter.

Last month, the number of people waiting for Fair Deal rose from 525 on 17th September to 686 on 30th September.

Fianna Fail for Roscommon-Galway Eugene Murphy says such an increase in a 2-week period is alarming, and points to serious issues within the system.

While additional funding is being provided for the Nursing Home Support Scheme, Deputy Murphy told Midwest News he's concerned that the waiting lists are increasing across the region.
