Written answers (Question to Health)

Any application for additional funding for services submitted to the HSE would be considered in the context of the HSE 2014 Estimates process.

In relation to the particular query regarding spinal services raised by the Deputy, as this is a service issue, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond directly to the Deputy in this matter.
