Operational responsibility for the management and delivery of health and personal social services was assigned to the Health Service Executive under the Health Act 2004. The Deputy refers to a report commissioned by the Health Service Executive and therefore the Executive is the appropriate body to consider the particular issues raised. My Department has requested the Parliamentary Affairs Division of the Executive to arrange to have the matter investigated and to have a reply issued directly to the Deputy.
