Written answers (Question to Health)

The Chief Medical Officer and the Secretary General are members of the Department of Health’s Management Board. They interact on a daily basis.

While formal meetings involving other parties are recorded, it would not be practical to record daily interactions between the Chief Medical Officer and the Secretary General.

Should the Deputy require details of any particular meeting, please contact my private office who will be happy to liaise with the relevant officials to obtain the information required.
