I propose to take Questions Nos. 329 and 343 together.

My Department and the Health Service Executive are currently engaged in a process to finalise the HSE Capital Plan for 2019. The HSE Capital Plan will determine the projects that can progress in 2019 and beyond having regard to the total available capital funding and the relevant priority of each project.

As the Health Service Executive is responsible for the delivery of healthcare infrastructureprojects, I have asked the HSE to outline the current status of the development of a community nursing unit at Ballyshannon, County Donegal directly to the Deputy.

Question No. 330 answered with Question No. 320.
