Willie Penrose

Question:

580 Mr. Penrose asked the Minister for Health and Children if a person (details supplied) in County Westmeath will be admitted, as a matter of urgency, to Tullamore General Hospital for the replacement of her right hip in view of the fact she is in severe pain; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [1710/99]

The provision of health services to eligible persons in County Westmeath is the statutory responsibility of the Midland Health Board in the first instance. I have asked the chief executive officer of the Midland Health Board to investigate this case and to reply to the Deputy directly as a matter of urgency.
