Written answers (Question to Health)

My Department is responsible for the formulation and development of policy in respect of the provision of healthcare and support services; responsibility for the management and delivery of health and personal social services rests with the Health Service Executive (HSE).

The HSE has now been tasked with implementing the recommendations of the Report of the Task Force on Personalised Budgets in relation to setting up Demonstration Projects. I have asked the HSE to respond directly to the Deputy regarding the roll out of the Personalised Budgets Demonstration Projects.
