Engagement is ongoing between the National Ambulance Service and the Irish Community Rapid Response in relation to a proposed air ambulance service for the South and I await the submission of an agreed proposal.
I have asked the HSE to respond to you directly in relation to any plans to develop a helipad at Wexford General Hospital. I should however explain that a process is in place for the agreement and prioritisation of projects that are proposed for inclusion in the Capital Plan. Proposals must be considered in the context of the capital funding available and priority must be based on verified service needs. The HSE will continue to apply the available funding for capital developments in the most effective way possible to meet current and future needs.
