Written Answers. - Nursing Home Subvention Scheme.

Michael Ring

Question:

75 Mr. Ring asked the Minister for Health when subvention will be provided for a person (details supplied) in County Mayo, in view of the fact that she was assessed as a high dependency case on 26 February 1997, and no decision has been made since. [9300/97]

Limerick East): As the Deputy will be aware the administration of the nursing home subvention scheme in County Mayo is the responsibility of the Western Health Board.

I have asked the Western Health Board to investigate this matter and respond directly to the Deputy with its findings.
