Written answers (Question to Health)

The HSE Clinical Advisory Group (CAG) was established in December 2019 to undertake a review regarding the provision of medical cards in cases of terminal illness. The final report arising from the review of the CAG was recently submitted to my Department. I am currently giving careful consideration to the recommendations contained within the report alongside Department officials. A decision on the publication of the report will be taken in due course.
