Jonathan Hourihane (Prof of Paediatrics,UCC, and member of the Dolphin Group) on Pat Kenny Show on Newstalk, December 2016 states : “I think that the clinical outcomes for children are dictated by the quality of the medical and other services available to the children within the children’s hospital……. I would agree that there is no strong evidence to show that co-location [with St James’s] improves the clinical outcome, but that’s not what co-location is about.”
Minister Harris at Health Committee , 29th Jan 2019: “We must remember the reason the site was chosen…. We had to build the hospital in the location that would deliver the best medical outcomes”.
More lies from government whose actions have had, to quote Deputy Alan Kelly, catastrophic consequences for the health situation in the country.
Minister Harris should resign.
