The total capital funding for the public Health Services announced in Budget 2019 and published in the Estimates for Public Services 2019 is €667m, an increase of €174m (35%) over the capital funding provided in Budget 2018.

- €567m (€564.461m+€2.539m) is available to the Health Service Executive for building, equipping and furnishing of health facilities,

- €85m for Information Communication Technology

- €15m for my Department (€14.527m) and directly funded agencies (€0.473m) under the aegis of my Department.

A Capital Plan for 2019 will be developed by the Health Service Executive having regard to the available funding. On completion of the Capital Plan it will be submitted to my Department for consideration.
