The CEO of the HSE Paul Reid is visiting health services in Counties Limerick and Clare today and tomorrow.  The HSE CEO is to visit a number of locations to learn about actions to improve health outcomes and relieve overcrowding in University Hospital Limerick.

An important element of the visit is to acknowledge and thank staff for their work throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

At University Hospital Limerick, Mr Reid  will talk to the team promoting early stroke discharge,  visit the cancer directorate which is eliminating ED delays for cancer patients, and hear details of initiatives by the hospital’s patient flow team to deal with the ongoing high demand for hospital services. Visits to  St Gabriel’s Children’s Respite House, Mungret, and  St Camillus’ Hospital, Shelbourne Road, where a new 75-bed unit will open in 2023 are also included.

On Wednesday, in Clare, Mr Reid will visit specialist services, including the Acute Psychiatric Unit in Ennis which serves patients in North Tipperary and the Injury Unit and Medical Assessment Unit at Ennis Hospital.
