Written answers (Question to Minister for Health and Children)

Responsibility for the provision of services at Letterkenny General Hospital rests with the North Western Health Board. In July 2003 I gave approval to the board to proceed with the planning of an extension to the accident and emergency department of the hospital. The board is currently in consultation with my Department with a view to progressing this project.
