Ceisteanna (252)

Réada Cronin

Ceist:

252. Deputy Réada Cronin asked the Minister for Health the reason HSE audiology has not been ring-fenced as an essential service for children who are deaf and hard of hearing; if he will make a commitment to ring-fencing that vital service in the future even in the event of further Covid-19 restrictions; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

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