UL Hospitals Group must appear before the Oireachtas Health Committee to deal with issues of concern in the HIQA report, a Fine Gael Senator and member of the committee has said.
Senator Martin Conway, who is the Fine Gael Seanad Health spokesperson, has written to the Chair of the Oireachtas Health Committee recommending that UL Hospitals Group management are invited before the Committee at the earliest possibly opportunity.
Senator Conway said, “The HIQA report raises some very serious concerns about patient safety at University Hospital Limerick.
“It is important that the Oireachtas Health Committee investigates this matter as soon as possible and so, I have asked the Chair of the Committee to invite UL Hospitals Group management to appear before the Committee at the earliest possibly opportunity.
“I hope we have swift acceptance of such an invite so we can urgently examine the concerns in the HIQA report and receive an update from UL Hospitals Group on the plan to address them,” concluded Senator Conway.
