Question:

601. Deputy Richard Boyd Barrett asked the Minister for Health the reason level 2 contact tracers are not paid the same as level 1 staff; if the quota will be removed for phone calls per day with the understanding that some calls are difficult and take longer than others in order to remove the pressure that staff face doing this important job; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

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