I propose to take Questions Nos. 246 and 247 together.
The report "National Policy and Strategy for the Provision of Neuro-rehabilitation Services in Ireland 2011 - 2015" published in December 2011, is the overarching policy on neuro-rehabilitation services. There are no proposals to publish an implementation plan in respect of this report as the report includes proposals for a framework for the future of neuro-rehabilitation services in Ireland. It also contains proposals on implementing the report including key elements such as: guiding principles; implementation structure; methodology for implementation; and information and communication. The report recognises that given the current economic climate, the focus in the short to medium term has to be on re-configuration of services, structures and resources and the enhancement of the skills and competencies required to meet the changing context.
