I propose to take Questions Nos. 433 to 435, inclusive, together.

The Capacity Review was published on the 23rd of January this year. In light of the inter-dependent nature of health service delivery across care sectors, the Review had a wider scope than previous exercises and included key elements of primary and community care infrastructure, in addition to hospital facilities. It is expected that the findings of the Review will feed into the National Development Plan process.

In relation to the particular query raised, as this is a service matter, I have asked the HSE to respond to you directly.
