Written answers (Question to Minister for Health)

The Emergency Medicine Programme report, which I launched on 19 June this year, sets out a vision for the development and delivery of emergency medical services in the State. The programme document will be hugely valuable. It is clinically led and is one of the key clinical programme documents. As for the other clinical programmes, it is a policy document, and there are areas still for discussion and improvement, but it will inform the development of government policy in this area.
