Minister for Health Dr James Reilly has confirmed that he will meet local delegations to discuss future service provision at Monaghan General Hospital, Fine Gael TD for Cavan/Monaghan Heather Humphreys told The Northern Standard yesterday.
Deputy Humphreys said that the meeting would take place within the next month, but the exact date – and whether the meeting would be held in Dublin or coincide with a visit by the Minister to the Monaghan Hospital site – remained to be finalised.
She welcomed the news as the culmination of concerted efforts by herself, Oireachtas colleagues and county and town councillors.
“This is a significant gesture by Dr Reilly – it is the first occasion in a very long time that we have managed to secure a meeting with the Minister for Health regarding the Monaghan General Hospital issue,” Deputy Humphreys said.
She added that the Minister had delivered on his pre-election commitment to address the issues relating to the hospital with local representatives.
It is expected that the Minister will meet with delegations from Monaghan Co and Town Councils, as well as members of the Monaghan General Hospital Community Alliance.
