- As the elected members of Roscommon County Council we unanimously oppose the closure of the Rosalie Unit, Castlerea by the HSE with the backing of Jim Daly, Minister for Mental Health Services & Government.
- We call on the Government and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to uphold their promise to keep the Rosalie Unit Open and call on all Oireachtas members to support a Private Members Motion by Deputy Eugene Murphy to oppose the closure of the Rosalie Unit and other mental health services and we call on all Senators and TDs to oppose the closure of the Rosalie Unit.
- We call on the Minister for Health Simon Harris T.D. and Tony Canavan HSE to immediately carry out a full investigation into Roscommon Mental Health Services where many of the recommendations of the Roscommon Mental Health Services Review report have not yet been implemented and Senior members of staff are reportedly now leaving the service.
Shame on Tony Canavan, HSE and Government hiding behind the Anderson report. Some of the most vulnerable people in our community being taken from their home where they received excellent care and knew everyone...being moved to an unfamiliar place...taken from home.
