Ceist:

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.
