Cross-party support for Sinn Féin’s involuntary patients consent bill ‘welcomed’ – Mary Lou McDonald TD

Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald TD has this evening welcomed the Seanad’s cross-party support for Sinn Féin legislation to extend advance healthcare directive rights to involuntary patients. 

The Bill will now move to committee stage.
 
The Dublin Central TD said: 

“Mental Health Reform developed this legislation in partnership with Sinn Féin. We applaud their work and continued commitment to patients’ rights. 

“I want to commend the work of my colleagues Senator Máire Devine and Deputy Pat Buckley who have pursued this important matter in both houses of the Oireachtas since their election in 2016. 

“Legislators now have an opportunity to correct an acknowledged gap in existing mental health legislation.”
