Minister Joe O’Brien, TD has welcomed funding of over €4.2 million for healthcare facilities in Dublin Fingal, announced last week under the Health Service Executive’s Capital Plan for 2022.

The 2022 Capital Plan, which outlines the strategic priorities for the Health Investment Programme. reiterates the government’s commitment to investing in our health and social care service.

It plays a critical role in enabling and enhancing service provision, and to drive the reforms of universal healthcare, set out in Sláintecare.

Minister O’Brien said: “I am delighted that a total of €4,260,000 will be spent on healthcare facilities in my constituency including the refurbishment of Lusk and Skerries Primary Care Centres, St Ita’s Portrane and a new high support community residence for Swords.

"I am delighted to see the overall increase in the health capital funding available for 2022 which is up to €1.02 billion, an increase of 4% on 2021… This funding will aid the move towards better care in the community.”

The funding includes investment to facilitate reorienting the model of care away from acute hospitals and towards primary and community settings and addressing capacity and infrastructural deficits that exist in the system.

The overall health capital funding available in 2022 is €1.02 billion, an increase of 4% on 2021.
