Ceisteanna (886)

Neale Richmond

Ceist:

886. Deputy Neale Richmond asked the Minister for Health when early intervention services, including consultations, and the intake of new clients will resume in view of the fact the waiting list is over a year; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [26838/20]

The Programme for Government, Our Shared Future, recognises the need to improve services for both children and adults with disabilities through better implementation and by working together across Government in a better way.

The Government commits to prioritising early diagnosis and access to services for children and ensuring that the most effective interventions are provided for each child, to guarantee the best outcomes.

As this is a service matter, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond to the deputy directly, as soon as possible.
