The cabinet has agreed to the relocation of the National Maternity Hospital.
Via RTÉ News:
The Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly, hailed Government approval for the hospital relocation plan as an “important milestone” for maternity services in Ireland.
Mr Donnelly said the new legal framework would ensure all legally permissible services will be available in the new NMH.
It will also “prevent any influence, religious or otherwise, on the operation of the new hospital” and “safeguard the State’s significant investment in the hospital”.
Speaking following the Cabinet meeting, the minister said that there will never be any religious influence on the services which will be provided at the new NMH.
There you go now.
