Fine Gael Waterford Minister Paudie Coffey has welcomed the signing of Memorandum of Understanding between Waterford Hospice Movement and HSE. This news was confirmed to him by his Ministerial Colleague, Minister for Health Leo Varadkar TD.
“This is another important step for this vital piece of infrastructure; last week I was pleased to have the project included in the South East Capital Plan. Planning and Enabling works have be both been completed and I expect that works will begin on site shortly.
“This project has long been promised for Waterford and is long overdue. I am pleased that this palliative care unit is being delivered now that the economy is recovering. Fine Gael in government has prioritised this capital project and it is excellent news for Waterford that this long critical project will now be delivered.”
