The National Treatment Purchase Fund (NTPF) currently collects and collates information in respect of the Inpatient, Day Case, Planned Procedure and Outpatient Waiting Lists.

The NTPF has advised that within the Irish Public Health System, patients are generally referred for Children’s hospital services up to the eve of their 16th birthday.

In relation to the specific query raised by the Deputy, the NTPF has provided the information requested in the tables attached which include patients between 16 and 18 years of age, to reflect patients who were under 18 on the 31st October 2019 according to the Date of Birth received from the relevant hospital.
