Ceisteanna (160)

Louise O'Reilly

Ceist:

160. Deputy Louise O'Reilly asked the Minister for Health further to Parliamentary Question No. 166 of 30 May 2018, the way in which it is envisaged that community rehabilitation will be delivered to stroke survivors in the same way as other persons with neurological conditions in view of the fact that early supported discharge replaces hospital based care (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter.

The Government is committed to providing services and supports for people with disabilities which will empower them to live independent lives, provide greater independence in accessing the services they choose, and enhance their ability to tailor the supports required to meet their needs and plan their lives.  This commitment is outlined in the Programme for Partnership Government, which is guided by two principles: equality of opportunity and improving the quality of life for people with disabilities. 

As the Deputy's question relates to a service issue, I have arranged for the question to be referred to the Health Service Executive (HSE) for direct reply to the Deputy.
