Written answers (Question to Health)

I have been informed by the HSE that there are currently no plans to change the provision of services at the treatment centre concerned. Any changes to the provision of services would be subject to discussions with and approval by the HSE.

In relation to the issue raised in the correspondence, as GP out-of-hours providers are private organisations, the rostering of GPs is an operational matter for the service provider and the HSE has no role in this regard.
