Written answers (Question to Health)

In relation to funding for cancer centres, the National Treatment Purchase Fund (NTPF) has advised my Department that it does not provide this type of funding. The NTPF is principally involved in arranging treatments in order to reduce hospital waiting lists, typically for Inpatients, Day Case, GI Scopes and Outpatients.
