Written answers (Question to Health)

The Programme for Government, Our Shared Future, recognises the need to improve services for both children and adults with disabilities through better implementation and by working together across Government in a better way.

As this question relates to a service matter, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond to the deputy directly, as soon as possible.
