HSE must halt plans to repurpose new Nenagh community nursing unit
Press release 12.3.24

The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation has called on the HSE to call halt to plans to repurpose the long-awaited community nursing unit in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary.
 
INMO official, Karen Liston said:
 
“The decision by the HSE to repurpose the new nursing home in Nenagh into a step-down facility for University Hospital Limerick without consulting unions and patients who were anxiously waiting to move from St. Conlon’s Nursing Home is extremely disappointing. 
 
“Nursing staff and the residents of St. Conlon’s Nursing Home deserve to be treated in their state-of-the art facility that was promised to them and that would meet HIQA standards. 
 
“It has been reported in the media that this proposed step-down facility will be outsourced to a private provider. The INMO cannot stand over the further outsourcing of a public health service. The residents of St. Conlon’s and the wider Nenagh community were promised a publicly funded and run service for care of older people. It is not acceptable for the HSE to change their minds at the last minute.”
