Watch: Deputy PM replies to questions about structural problems at Mount Carmel

Following reports carried in newspapers in connection with structural problems at Mount Carmel, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Health Chris Fearne replied to questions as to whether ongoing work in the hospital posed any risks to patients.

The Minister addressed these issues while on a site visit to a regional health centre in Paola.

He said that Mount Carmel was 150 years old and that when water seepage occurred a year and a half ago, instead of carrying out temporary patch work as would ordinarily happen, a study on the hospital’s structural problems was commissioned.

He explained that a program had been initiated to transform Mount into a state-of-the-art hospital over a five year period and that patients had been evacuated from those parts of the hospital that were considered unsafe.
