HSE confirms Roscommon MAU will be extended in 2018

The HSE’s service plan for 2018 is set to include the extension of opening hours of the medical assessment unit at Roscommon University Hospital.

The facility is currently open only from 9am to 5pm, but in the Budget, the government pledged funding to allow it open in the evening and at weekends.

The HSE will launch its service plan for next year this afternoon, and local Environment Minister Denis Naughten says it’ll include a commitment to extend MAUs countrywide, including in Roscommon.

But the Roscommon-Galway TD claims the exact opening times won’t be determined until a later date.
