John Perry

Question:

207 Mr. Perry asked the Minister for Health and Children if a person (details supplied) in County Sligo will be called for orthopaedic surgery; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [5119/00]

The provision of medical treatment to eligible persons in County Sligo is the statutory responsibility of the North Western Health Board in the first instance. I have asked the chief executive officer of the board to investigate this case and to reply to the Deputy directly as a matter of urgency.
