Bairbre de Brún: Go raibh maith agat, a LeasCheann Comhairle. Tá mo chuid moltaí do thodhchaí Ospidéal an Mater leagtha amach i mo cháipéis chomhairliúcháin ‘Seirbhísí Níos Fearr a Fhorbairt: Ospidéil a Nuachóiriú agus Struchtúir a Leasú’. An chéad rud is mian liom a rá is é nach raibh sé riamh i gceist go dtarlódh na hathruithe atá molta agam thar oíche. Leanfaidh an Mater de...

Northern Ireland Assembly: The Future of the Mater Hospital (14 Oct 2002)

Bairbre de Brún: I have been told that I have very limited time, and, therefore, I do not think it is possible.

Northern Ireland Assembly: The Future of the Mater Hospital (14 Oct 2002)

Bairbre de Brún: I have had signals that my time is almost up, so, unfortunately, that will not be possible. The points raised during the period of consultation, and those raised today, will be taken on board when considering the outcome of the consultation process. This is a real consultation process, as I have said in debates about other aspects of the consultation proposals. I have stressed that people’s...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Northern Ireland Fire Service (14 Oct 2002)

Bairbre de Brún: Unless that happens before midnight tonight, Mr Wilson knows well that it is most unlikely that we will face any such prospect. However, I can say that although my Department is not directly involved in the negotiations that take place between the Fire Authorities and the staff side, the Department, along with the Fire Authority, has responsibility to consider how emergency cover can be...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Antrim Hospital (14 Oct 2002)

Bairbre de Brún: Go raibh maith agat, a Cheann Comhairle. Bhí 1,935 duine ar liosta feithimh d’othair chónaitheacha ag Otharlann Cheantar Aontroma ar 30 Deireadh Fómhair 2002. Is ionann sin agus laghdú de 100 sna sé mhí ó 31 Mhárta.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Antrim Hospital (14 Oct 2002)

Bairbre de Brún: I am slightly at a loss to understand the connection between an ambulance and the provision of money for care in the community. However, if the Member wishes to write to me on the subject, I would be happy to take up that point with him. On several occasions I have stated that years of underfunding have affected not only hospital capacity but, vitally, care in the community to the extent that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Antrim Hospital (14 Oct 2002)

Bairbre de Brún: When I came into office one of my priorities was to address the situation that I found and that the Member’s party would also have found, had it not passed over this portfolio. The situation was that, for many years, there had not been sufficient investment in hospital or community services, capacity, equipment, staff or staff training. Therefore, one of my major achievements has been to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Five-Year Tobacco Action Plan (14 Oct 2002)

Bairbre de Brún: We have taken considerable steps to discourage smoking. The Member knows that all steps have been taken to ensure that our staff, as others, lead by example in the work that must be done on this. We have undertaken public information campaigns. We have television advertisements, a web site and a magazine, all aimed at discouraging smoking among young people. Earlier this year we released the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Five-Year Tobacco Action Plan (14 Oct 2002)

Bairbre de Brún: I am somewhat reluctant to respond to a series of questions that, like the heckling today, has more to do with current selection conventions in the Unionist community to choose candidates for forthcoming elections than with services. However, the work that I outlined in answer to the previous question is only a small part of all the work that has been done. We have been working towards a ban...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Fire Service (14 Oct 2002)

Bairbre de Brún: Go raibh maith agat, a Cheann Comhairle.

D’aontaigh an t-údarás chomh maith le hionadaithe foirne ar chomhfhógairt chosanta a bhfuil sé de aidhm aici...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Fertility Treatment (14 Oct 2002)

Bairbre de Brún: Go raibh maith agat, a Cheann Comhairle. Áirítear seirbhísí neamhthorthúlachta sna ceithre bhord sláinte agus seirbhísí sóisialta mar chlinicí ginearálta gínéiceolaíochta; mar sin de níl saineolas ar bith ar fáil maidir le hamanna feithimh do chlinicí neamhthorthúlachta. Cuimsíonn cóireáil neamhthorthúlachta drugaí, máinliacht, inseamhnú saorga agus teicníochtaí...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Fertility Treatment (14 Oct 2002)

Bairbre de Brún: There are two difficulties with regard to the future. One is obvious in today’s context; the other is that, on an increasing number of issues, Members have asked about disaggregating the information to a level which simply is not possible. It is difficult to acquire the information, and it would place the system under added pressure. With regard to improving the service, it was precisely...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Brain Surgery (14 Oct 2002)

Bairbre de Brún: Go raibh maith agat, a Cheann Comhairle. Níl fáil ar an eolas ar líon na n-obráidí máinliacht inchinne a rinneadh agus ar líon na daoine atá ag fanacht le máinliacht, mar ní mhiondealaítear liostaí feithimh ar an speisialtacht néarmháinliachta ina gcatagóirí ar leith. The information requested is not available, as waiting lists in the neurosurgery speciality are not broken...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Brain Surgery (14 Oct 2002)

Bairbre de Brún: I assure Ms Morrice that no one is put to the bottom of a waiting list because of age and that Mrs Glascott has most definitely not been put to the bottom of the list because of her age. As Ms Morrice knows, right up until I came here today, my office has been dealing with her to determine what to provide for Mrs Glascott and the steps that must be taken to do that. Ms Morrice referred to the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Brain Surgery (14 Oct 2002)

Bairbre de Brún: Provision has been made to fund four nurses, on a supernumerary basis, to attract them to the neurosurgery speciality. Therefore, work has been done to improve discharge times; provide additional nurses and theatre lists; and find funding for two additional beds for elective surgery.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Brain Surgery (14 Oct 2002)

Bairbre de Brún: Practices vary between different countries in Europe. Some practices are similar here, and some are not. Specific work has been done on elective surgery here, and questions have been asked about the payments that have been made for it. Negotiations must take place for people to work outside their normal hours, and that issue is also being addressed through the negotiations on consultant contracts.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health, Social Services and Public Safety: Brain Surgery (14 Oct 2002)

Bairbre de Brún: As I have said many times in the Assembly, I agree that staff in the health and personal social services deal with the legacy of years of considerable underfunding. Daily, they are faced with questions that must be answered and decisions that must be taken in a far from ideal context. In neurosurgery, the more urgent cases are assessed daily and treated in accordance with clinical priority....
