HSE apologises for delays at Donegal respite centre

first_imgDeputy Pat the Cope Gallagher has raised the issue of the continued delays in opening Seaview Respite House in Mountcharles with the HSE.He said there have been many false dawns in the opening of this much-needed respite centre.Previously there have been issues surrounding this centre which have been replaced by other issues subsequently – and all these delays have led to longer delays in getting this centre up and running. Deputy Galagher said “The HSE in written correspondence with me have confirmed that the centre will now open in November, the current delay is due to fire compliance works which needed to be untaken at the centre in Mountcharles.“I have raised the issue of the delayed opening of this centre with the Minister of State and HSE previously added Pat the Cope.“Regrettably, the HSE did not commit to a precise date in November when the centre will open , and I will now be further calling on them to set a clear date for when this centre will open.“It is not good enough to let this drag on any further, and the parents and guardians of the service users will need to make appropriate plans for when this centre is open, therefore an exact date is required. I acknowledge the apology issued by the HSE, for the existing delays in not having the respite centre available for the users.” The Donegal TD said it is essential that all the stops are now pulled out and every focus and effort is made to re-open this centre without further delay.He added “A great deal of inconvenience and distress has been caused to the service users of this respite centre throughout the period in which Seaview Respite House was closed.” HSE apologises for delays at Donegal respite centre was last modified: October 16th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
