I am advised by the HSE and the NTPF that waiting times for diagnostics such as CT scans are not held centrally by either body.

I have requested a report from the HSE on waiting times for CT scans for oncology patients and I will provide the Deputy with details of the report as soon as it is available.

With regard to the individual patient query, I have asked the HSE to respond to the Deputy directly.
