The Health Minister Simon Harris has confirmed that a proposal for a new Central Sterile Services Department at Roscommon Hospital has now been agreed between HSE Estates and the Saolta Hospital Group.

Concerns have been raised recently about the future of the sterile services department at Roscommon Hospital and its impact on surgical procedures at the hospital, unless investment was secured urgently.

Currently, sterilisation of some equipment is being outsourced to another hospital.

Roscommon FG Senator Frank Feighan says a proposal for the new unit has now been agreed, and the project brief has been prepared, which he hopes will progress to design stage early next year.
