Vol. 372 No. 10

Written Answers. - Public Hospital Facilities Charges.


asked the Minister for Health the number of hospitals and health boards which are implementing the charges to consultants for use of public facilities for private patients.

Health boards and voluntary hospitals were advised by the Government's decision that consultants should make a contribution for the use of public hospital facilities in the treatment of private patients. I have discussed the question of the collection of this contribution with the Irish Medical Organisation recently and I am awaiting their response.
