Latest Laois News: Laois TD welcomes Portlaoise Respiratory Assessment Unit news
Portlaoise Respiratory Assessment Unit Good News- Stanley
Local Sinn Fein TD Brian Stanley has welcomed the announcement re: RAU attached to the ED at Portlaoise Hospital.
“The sanctioning of the new 550 SQ M facility is good news for Co Laois. I have raised this issue many times in recent months with Minister Donnelly. I want to commend the hospital management for the strong and coherent case they made for this unit.
The €5.5 M project will provide a badly needed facility in Portlaoise and will also bolster the case for retention of full 24/7 Emergency Department services at the hospital. It will provide badly needed extra space in what is a very busy section of the hospital. This is good news for patients and for staff.
What is important now is that the project moves on without delay.’
