Ceisteanna (518)

Denis Naughten


518. Deputy Denis Naughten asked the Minister for Health the reason general practitioners have had the electronic referral pathway for CT and MRI tests removed from them; his views on whether it is appropriate that patients requiring urgent scans are being referred to emergency departments; his plans to reverse this policy; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

As this question relates to a service matter, I have arranged for it to be referred to the Health Service Executive for direct reply to the Deputy.
