Written answers (Question to Health)

Section 39 of the Health Act 2004 makes provision for the HSE to provide assistance to bodies that provide services similar, or ancillary to, services that the HSE may provide. These organisations provide a broad range of services and are governed by Service Level Agreements with the HSE.

The HSE also operates a National Lottery funded scheme under which it provides grants to health agencies and other organisations. As decisions on the provision of both Section 39 and National Lottery funding are a matter for the HSE, I have asked them to respond directly to the Deputy's question.
