SIPTU representatives will meet with HSE management on Thursday (24th August) to discuss the future of Loreto Day Centre services for the elderly in Navan, County Meath. SIPTU Organiser, John Mc Camley, said: “The facility was recently closed due to the building not being in line with fire regulations. SIPTU representatives had previously written to the management of the HSE citing a number of concerns about the failure to adequately communicate with our members in the lead up to the closure of the facility. Following engagement with management the union had requested a number of assurances on the future of elderly day care services in the area.” He added: “SIPTU representatives of nursing and care staff within HSE Meath Elderly Services have raised concerns regarding the redeployment of staff from the facility and the transfer of services to other locations. There is particular concern around the adequate staffing in other day centres. “At the meeting on Thursday, SIPTU representatives will be seeking clarification of these issues and impressing on management the urgent need for a revised service plan for the Meath area.”
