Work is progressing on a Cystic Fibrosis Unit at University Hospital Galway.
The HSE has appointed a specialist team to staff the facility including a Cystic Fibrosis Nurse and Physiotherapist.
A dietician and a consultant with a special interest in CF will also be recruited.
There is no dedicated CF treatment centre in Ireland despite the fact that there are over 12,000 suffers in the country.
HSE officials say they are a hopeful a brand new CF unit will be built at UHG but in the meantime they may use an interim building to provide isolation care for CF patients.
A progress report on the interim measures will be issued at the next HSE West Regional Health Forum meeting.
