The HSE, the Dublin Regional Homeless Executive and voluntary homeless services responded quickly to protect homeless people from COVID-19. Budget 2021 provides additional funding of €11 million for measures to protect vulnerable people who are homeless during the pandemic.

Met with the Dublin COVID-19 homeless response team at a self-isolation facility for people who are homeless in Dublin today. Health and social care workers in homeless services have worked tirelessly to protect people during COVID-19. Thanks for all your hard work 👏

Great to have this barrier to training removed. A necessary and important step for doctors.

"Any narrative emphasising that most deaths have occurred in people aged over 65, or with underlying conditions, seems to imply that we should be less worried. This deeply offends me on behalf of my older patients."

To slow the spread of Covid, we're asking everyone to avoid discretionary visits - don't have neighbours over, don't pop into a friend for a glass of wine, don't make your employees go to work if not necessary. Discussed this on . Listen back:

People must now make choices. Stop meeting up in groups, stop socialising, stop organising play dates, parties and other social activities. People must recognise that is a direct threat to themselves and their families. Now is the time for each of us to act.

People are understandably tired. It is hard to live in the shadow of a pandemic. Unfortunately Covid-19 does not get tired, and so we must remain mindful. Please follow the letter and spirit of this guidance. We need to reduce the spread to protect lives and our health service.

The government has agreed to move Donegal, Cavan and Monaghan to Level 4 of the Living with Covid-19 framework from tomorrow night. We are also introducing further restrictions for the rest of the country, including no visitors to your home or garden.

We welcome €12m funding for maternity, gynaecology & fertility services. This is crucial to boost implementation of the maternity strategy & to ensure that all women have full range of birth options & can receive perinatal mental health support when needed

This is very much welcome. Investment in women's health necessary. Great to see gynaecology services mentioned as well as maternity services. Looking forward to working with and to ensure this investment leads to improved services for women.

Budget 2021 will bring an additional €50 million to fund new medicines and innovative treatments for patients. This will be a gamechanger for some as it means that doctors treating patients with conditions including cancer and Parkinson's will have more treatment options

With the €6 million in additional funding provided to progress Trauma care, we will develop a Major Trauma Centre in Dublin and provide the beds, trauma theatres and additional staff needed. This will reduce disability and improve patient outcomes
