Written answers (Question to Health)

There will always be more projects than can be funded by the Exchequer. As with all capital projects, further development of the acute sector infrastructure must be considered within the overall capital envelope available to the health service. There is limited funding available for new projects over the period 2014-2018 given the level of commitments and the costs to completion already in place.
