Ceisteanna (630)

Róisín Shortall

Ceist:

630. Deputy Róisín Shortall asked the Minister for Health if he will request the Health Service Executive to expedite a decision on an application for occupational therapy assessment in respect of a child (details supplied) in Dublin 11, particularly in view of the fact that the closing date for applying for support hours at second level is imminent and without the required assessment it will be very difficult for the secondary school to make an application for support hours.

The particular issue raised by the Deputy is a service matter for the Health Service Executive. Accordingly I have arranged for the question to be referred to the Health Service Executive for direct reply to the Deputy.
