Written answers (Question to Health)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 626 and 627 together.

My Department and the Health Service Executive are currently engaged in a process to finalise the HSE Capital Plan for 2019. The HSE Capital Plan will propose the projects that can progress in 2019 and beyond having regard to the available capital funding, the number of large national capital projects currently underway, the cash-flow requirements attaching to each project and the relevant priority.

Once the HSE has finalised its Capital Plan for 2019, it will then be submitted to me for consideration.
