Calleary raises Covid-19 crossover concerns at MUH in Dáil

Fri, May 29, 2020

Deputy Dara Calleary

The chief executive officer of the HSE has been requested by the Health Minister, Simon Harris, to put together a report on a number of issues surrounding the management of Covid-19 and non Covid-19 patients in Mayo University Hospital.

The development follows on from Fianna Fáil TD and deputy party leader, Dara Calleary, raising a number of concerns with the Minister in the Dáil on Wednesday.

Speaking in the chamber, Deputy Calleary said: "I acknowledge the 1,615 people who have passed away. While this has been a very significant week, we can never forget these people or their families. I also acknowledge the vast work done across the country but today I focus on my own county, Mayo, with the work done by health workers, carers, home helps, family carers and other professionals, which has been immense and under hugely challenging circumstances.
