Written answers (Question to Minister for Health and Children)

The provision of health services in the Dublin 8 area is the responsibility of the South Western Area Health Board. It acts under the aegis of the Eastern Regional Health Authority. My Department has asked the authority's CEO to investigate the matter and to reply directly to the Deputy, as a matter of urgency.
