Minister for Health Simon Harris TD has announced a package of health and well-being supports for former residents of Tuam’s Mother and Baby Homes, and related institutions.
The measures being announced today are based on the recommendations of the Inter-Departmental Working Group, established earlier this year.
The package of supports will include the provision of additional counselling services to help support the needs of former residents, the introduction of a dedicated patient advocacy liaison service for former residents and the commencement of a targeted health research study, which will assist in the development of any future service responses which may be required.
Minister Harris says he’s confident that the range of service supports now being provided will be of considerable benefit to former residents of Mother and Baby homes and will directly assist, in a practical way, the individual health needs of former residents.”
