Ceisteanna (339)

Willie O'Dea

Ceist:

339. Deputy Willie O'Dea asked the Minister for Health if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the HSE has discontinued funding for the Age Well Programme in the mid-west despite the great success this programme had in combatting loneliness and isolation; if core funding will be provided for this programme in view of the fact the population is ageing and loneliness and isolation is growing; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20810/18]

As this is a service matter I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond directly to the Deputy as soon as possible.
