Written answers (Question to Health)

I would like to assure the Deputy that I fully appreciate how restrictions across the health system are impacting service users and I acknowledge that restrictions in maternity hospitals have been particularly difficult for expectant mothers and partners. However, as this is a service matter, I have asked the National Women's and Infants Health Programme, HSE, to respond to the Deputy directly, as soon as possible.
