Written answers (Question to Health)

Under the Health Act, 2007 statutory responsibility is given to the Chief Inspector of Social Services in the Health Information and Quality Authority for registration and inspection of categories of designated centres, including nursing homes for older people. As the Chief Inspector is independent in the exercise of his statutory function it would be inappropriate to comment on any individual application for registration.
