Replace hospital staff - TD

Sean Fleming TD is calling for the senior management and clinical staff in Portlaoise hospital to be immediately replaced, as the National Chief Medical Officer has no confidence in them.

“In addition to this the necessary resources including clinical staff, nursing staff, managerial staff, equipment and facilities must be provided in the hospital as a matter of absolute urgency,” he said.

He added that the appointment of a team from Coombe Hospital to take control of the maternity service in Portlaoise is the right thing to do.
