Sinn Féin will call on the Government to ensure the new National Maternity Hospital (NMH) has “legally-guaranteed independence” from all non-medical influence when the Dáil returns next week

The party’s spokeswoman on health, Louise O’Reilly, has published a private members’ business motion on the governance of the new hospital.

The motion will be debated in the Dáil on Wednesday.

Describing conditions at the maternity hospital’s current Holles Street site in Dublin as “deplorable”, she said the new NMH should be built on the St Vincent’s University Hospital campus as quickly as possible.
