The HSE's Capital Spending Plan for the next three years has been published today.

The plan covers 2019 to 2021, at a cost of over €2 billion.

The publication of the HSE's Capital Plan was delayed as a result of the over-run in the cost of the new National Children's Hospital, however, it's understood no projects face cancellation or delays, despite the over-run.

In Mayo, funding is being provided for additional bed capacity at Mayo University Hospital, as well as electrical upgrade works at the hospital.

Elsewhere across the region, the capital plan includes funding for the new Rehabilitation Unit at Roscommon University Hospital, and a 50-bed upgrade of the Sacred Heart Community Nursing Unit in Roscommon.


In Galway, funding has been announced for the long-awaited new Emergency Department and Maternity Unit at University Hospital Galway and a new elective hospital at Merlin Park in Galway to reduce waiting times and overcrowding.

The plan also includes a new ambulance base in Galway city, while the mortuary at UHG will undergo major refurbishment works, and there's funding for the development of a blood science laboratory.
