Modular hospital would be up and running in Clonmel in six weeks

The modular hospital being proposed for South Tipperary General Hospital as an interim solution to over-crowding, could be up and running within six weeks of commencement, writes Noel Dundon.

The unit, which has been put forward following extensive behind-the-scenes work by Deputy Michael Lowry and senior consultants at the hospital would cost the HSE in the region of €60,000 per week, fully staffed etc.

It would mean the provision of forty en-suite rooms to be used for pre and post-op preparation and recovery according to Deputy Michael Lowry who has been conducting intensive behind the scenes negotiations with the HSE and Miister Simon Harris. See this weeks Tipperary Star for full story.
