Parliamentary Question No. 223 on Wednesday, 28th November, 2012
* To ask the Minister for Health the procedures in place to ensure that facilities such as beds and rooms are available for persons and their families travelling from the west to Crumlin Children’s Hospital, Dublin, for day treatment.
Seán Kyne T.D.
Details Supplied: particularly on account of the fact that a very young patient who is seriously ill with cancer had to wait in a corridor for over four hours despite the fact that she is receiving radiation treatment
Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin remains cognisant at all times of the challenges facing their young patients and supporting families and works with the families whenever possible to ensure the least possible disruption to the patient.
In relation to the specific query raised by the Deputy, as this is a service matter it has been referred to the HSE for direct reply.
