Ceisteanna (1407)

Michael Ring

Ceist:

1407. Deputy Michael Ring asked the Minister for Health if he has considered providing additional resources to the secretariat of NPHET given the drafting process of minute-taking takes time and cannot be dispensed with in the interest of ensuring quality and accuracy; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [14137/21]

The Deputy is advised that the Department of Health manages the allocation of its human resources/staff complement effectively, responding to staffing needs as they arise. The NPHET Secretariat is adequately resourced at present. NPHET meeting minutes are drafted promptly by the NPHET Secretariat, reviewed as appropriate, and published on the Department of Health website, following their endorsement by the NPHET Members.
