Written answers (Question to Health)

The Deputy is referring to the wording contained in the 2019 CHO7 Operational Plan which identifies the "Non-integration of ICT systems which are not fit for purpose from Clinical, Financial and HR perspectives" as a structural risk to the delivery of the operation plan for Dublin South, Kildare West and Wicklow.

The risk and the mitigating actions are owned by CHO7 and the HSE.  As this is an operational matter, I have asked the HSE to respond directly to the Deputy.
