St Luke’s Hospital gets €2.5m to finally make MRI scanner project a reality

St Luke’s General Hospital has finally been promised €2.5 million for the provision of the long-awaited MRI scanner as part of the Health Service Executive’s National Service Plan for 2020.

Just over €3.25 million has been set aside for projects specific to Kilkenny under the plan which was released this week.

Spending on essential local services will increase as the HSE promises additional home care hours and a home support scheme of up to 230,000 hours nationally beyond the 2019 levels.

The plan also provides for additional personal assistance hours and additional emergency residential places across the country.

As part of the plan, St Patrick’s Centre will receive €450,000 for the refurbishment of four houses that will provide independent living for up to 12 people.

Thomastown’s Primary Care Centre and the Primary Care Centre in Ayrefield will both receive €150,000.

The Sláintecare Integration Fund which covers Community Healthcare Network (CHN) programmes in Kilkenny such as Integrated Care Programme for Older People (ICPOP), falls prevention programmes, frailty management, dementia related services, chronic disease management, and integrated care for diabetes and heart failure, is also set for an undisclosed funding boost.

Overall, the HSE’s National Plan for 2020 has a budget of €17.4 billion.
