Minister Reilly says no change to Navan Accident and Emergency Department in the short term

Minister for Health James Reilly today (Tuesday 20th May 2014) made the following statement regarding Navan Hospital Accident and Emergency Department.

“I will not stand over any change to Navan Hospital Accident and Emergency Department while there is not enough capacity elsewhere in the system to safely accommodate the patients that are treated there. If there is proven capacity in the system, there will be changes to Navan Accident and Emergency Department in the best medical interests of patients from the area. It is not feasible for this to take place in the short term.”
