Jimmy Deenihan

Question:

567 Mr. Deenihan asked the Minister for Health and Children if he will expedite an appointment for an angiogram/angioplast to Cork University Hospital for a person (details supplied) in County Kerry; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19905/00]

The provision of medical treatment to eligible persons in County Kerry in this instance is the statutory responsibility of the Southern Health Board. I have asked the chief executive officer of the board to investigate the position in relation to this case and to reply to the Deputy directly.
