The Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly has announced the creation of a Taskforce to tackle Hospital waiting lists.

In a letter to the recently resigned members of the Slainte Care Implementation Advisory Council, Minister Donnelly said waiting lists were bad before the pandemic hit, but have worsened.

Details of the taskforce are to be announced after next week's Budget.

The Minister also said he plans to push ahead with Slainte Care, despite the high profile resignations, which he said had cast a shadow over progress made in increasing health care capacity.
