Dan Neville


242 Mr. Neville asked the Minister for Health and Children the hospitals which at any time in 2002 administered accident and emergency services from the back of ambulances due to pressure on accident and emergency services. [2974/03]

The provision of accident and emergency services at acute hospitals is a matter for the Eastern Regional Health Authority and the health boards. My Department has therefore asked the chief executive officer of each board and the regional chief executive of the ERHA to investigate this matter and to reply directly to the Deputy.
