Written answers (Question to Health)

The Health Service Executive (HSE) has statutory responsibility for decisions on pricing and reimbursement of medicinal products under the community drug schemes in accordance with the provisions of the Health (Pricing and Supply of Medical Goods) Act 2013.

Therefore, I have asked the HSE to respond to the deputy directly, as soon as possible.
