Written answers (Question to Health)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 240 and 241 together.

The National Clinical Programme for Rehabilitation Medicine was established under the guidance of the National Clinical Strategy and Programmes Directorate of the Health Service Executive. The appointment and location of consultants in rehabilitation medicine and the development of services nationally and regionally is a matter for the HSE. Accordingly the Department has asked the HSE to reply to you directly.
