Seanad Commencement Matter on the need for the Minister to state when all beds will be accessible in Kenmare Hospital and when full staffing will be in place

At the Seanad Commencement Matter 9 July 2015 I asked the Minister for Health, Leo Varadkar, to consider the need for full staffing in Kenmare Hospital in order to accommodate the full use of the long-stay residential beds that are available but are not in use due to the hospital being understaffed.

The Minister has said that the HSE Cork and Kerry Community Healthcare Organisation is currently carrying out a review of Kenmare Hospital to consider the requirement for both long-stay and short-stay residential beds and following this review they will consider the viability of opening and funding additional beds in the hospital. The final report will be available at the end of the month of July.
