Written answers (Question to Health)

The level of funding available for my Department is being considered as part of the national Estimates and budgetary process for 2020 which is currently underway. Following completion of this process, the National Service Plan for the HSE will set out the type and volume of services to be provided for the level of funding available.

Pending completion of this process it is not appropriate for me to comment further at this stage.
