Written answers (Question to Health)

I wish to reassure the Deputy that I have no plans to cease the LTI Scheme. However, the LTI Scheme will be included in the review of the current eligibility framework, including the basis for existing hospital and medication charges, to be carried out under commitments given in the Sláintecare Implementation Strategy.
