The National Review of Specialist Cardiac Services is ongoing and therefore no final cost for undertaking the review to date is available.

The most significant cost that has been incurred so far by the Review process relates to the conduct by the Health Research Board - Collaboration in Ireland for Clinical Effectiveness Reviews (HRB-CICER) of an evidence synthesis review for submission to the Steering Group of the National Review.  Payment of €130,000 has been made in respect of this evidence synthesis review.
