Ceist:

654 Mr. Ring asked the Minister for Health and Children when a person (details supplied) in County Mayo will be called for a bone scan on his shoulder in view of the fact that he is in severe pain. [20673/00]

The provision of medical treatment for eligible persons in County Mayo in this instance is the statutory responsibility of the Western Health Board. My Department has asked the chief executive officer of the board to investigate the position in relation to this case and to reply to the Deputy directly.
