Capital investments required at Medical Council HQ

By Dermot - 21st Oct 2019 | 5 views

Capital investment requirements have been necessary to ensure the “efficient operation” of the regulator and its rented headquarters in Dublin, Kingram House.

“Council noted that this was part of a bigger picture on the requirements of Kingram House, however it is necessary to ensure the building is kept fit for purpose,” outlined minutes of a Council meeting in March.  

A Council spokesperson told the Medical Independent (MI): “Refurbishments include a number of necessary repairs due to new building standards and legislation and time-related wear and tear.

“Reconfiguration of some of the desk and meeting room spaces to better accommodate staff and operations may be included. All costs associated with these proposed works are commercially sensitive.”

Last year, MI reported that Kingram House was “at capacity” and the regulator was examining future options.

“Operating lease payments recognised as an expense were €820,000 (2017: €820,000),” according to the Council’s 2018 annual report. “In September 2018, the Medical Council entered into a six-month contract for additional office space. The cost of this for 2018 included in the rent and rates expense was €23,342.”
