Written answers (Question to Health)

The JobBridge Scheme was established by my colleague the Minister for Social Protection to provide work experience placements for interns for a 6 or 9 month period.

The filling of such posts is a matter for the Health Service Executive, and as such, the Deputy's enquiry has been referred to the HSE for direct reply.
