Question:

115 Mr. Ring asked the Minister for Health and Children the reason an operation for a person (details supplied) in County Mayo has been cancelled on four occasions; and when this person can expect to be called for the operation. [17291/03]

Responsibility for the provision of hospital services to residents of County Mayo rests with the Western Health Board. My Department has, therefore, asked the chief executive officer of the board to investigate the position in relation to this case and to reply directly to the Deputy.
