Written answers (Question to Minister for Health and Children)

As the Deputy will be aware, the provision of health services in the Carlow area is, in the first instance, the responsibility of the South Eastern Health Board. My Department has, therefore, asked the chief executive of the board to investigate the matter raised by the Deputy and reply direct to him as a matter of urgency.
