Questions (147)

Thomas Pringle


147. Deputy Thomas Pringle asked the Minister for Health if he will ensure that the 36 posts sanctioned nationally to support the implementation of the type 2 diabetes cycle of care initiative as set out in the Health Service Executive 2016 service plan will be filled; to ensure the community-based senior dietician role allocated to County Donegal is filled; if he is aware that without this post being filled, general practitioners delivering the cycle of care initiative in County Donegal cannot refer high risk patients to a more specialised service such as dietetics that could help improve diabetes management in patients; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Written answers (Question to Health)

As the Deputy's question relates to service matters, I have arranged for the question to be referred to the Health Service Executive for direct reply to the Deputy. If you have not received a reply from the HSE within 15 working days please contact my Private Office and they will follow up the matter with them.
