Written answers (Question to Minister for Health)

As the Deputy is aware, the provision of health services in the south Tipperary community care 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 directly to him as a matter of urgency.
