Written answers (Question to Health)

My Department and the Health Service Executive are currently engaged in a process to finalise the HSE Capital Plan for 2019. Once the HSE has finalised its Capital Plan for 2019, it will then be submitted to me for consideration.

I understand that Beaumont Hospital intends to proceed shortly with a planning permission application for the new emergency department.
