Written answers (Question to Health)

90% of the population have access to GP out-of-hours services in 14 centres nationally, in all HSE regions, in at least part of every county. Over 2,000 GPs provide services in the co-ops.

In relation to the specific issue raised by the Deputy, as this is a service matter I have asked the HSE to respond to the Deputy directly on the issue.

Question No. 612 answered with Question No. 570.
