I propose to take Questions Nos. 659, 663, 667, 679, 687 and 697 together.
As the Deputies are aware, I have asked Comhairle na nOspidéal to carry out a review of neurosurgical services and to prepare a report for my consideration. Comhairle have been asked to focus, in particular, on the provision of adequate capacity and consideration of equity of access to neurosurgical services having regard to best practice in the provision of quality healthcare. I understand that the work of the comhairle committee on neurosurgical services is ongoing .
Decisions in relation to the future development of neurosurgical services will be informed by the comhairle report.
