Michael O'Kennedy


155 Mr. O'Kennedy asked the Minister for Health if his attention has been drawn to the gravely inadequate level of orthodontic services for children in North Tipperary; the action, if any, he proposes to take to improve the situation; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

I understand from the Mid-Western Health Board that a fourth surgery has now been developed in the Orthodontic Department in St. Camillus Hospital and this will bring about an improvement in orthodontic services in the mid-west including services in north Tipperary.
