Written answers (Question to Health)

The HSE pays fees and allowances to certain health professionals with whom it holds contracts, including General Practitioners, Pharmacists, Dentists, Ophthalmologists, Optometrists and Dispensing Opticians. As the information requested by the Deputy is not routinely provided to the Department, I have asked the HSE to respond to the Deputy directly in this matter.
