My Department is continuing to work with the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform and the Health Service Executive in a process to finalise as soon as possible a multi-annual Capital Plan for the HSE, which will include capital projects to be funded in 2019 and beyond, having regard to the available capital funding and the number of large national capital projects currently underway. The availability of funding determines the timeframe for the delivery of capital projects such as the proposed MRI accommodation at Regional Hospital Mullingar.
