Questions on Cavan Monaghan Health for Deputy O’Caolain

On the “Week in Politics” on RTE, Caoimhin O’Caolain claimed that doctors in his constituency stated that there were 17 avoidable deaths due to the downgrading of some services in the area.

1. Could Deputy O’Caolain give us the details on this?
2. Does Deputy O’Caolain think that there is sufficient emergency work to support an accredited A&E Department at Monaghan General Hospital, assuming that Cavan General Hospital remains in operation?
3. Does Deputy O’Caolain support the “Vision for Change” for national mental health as it applies to Cavan Monaghan?
