I propose to take Questions Nos. 1315, 1316 and 1500 together.

These Parliamentary Questions relate to the Health Service Executive’s proposed new Stroke Strategy. This proposal will be considered as part of the overall Budget and Estimate processes. Until these processes have been concluded I am not in a position to comment on these matters.

The Government is committed to implementing National Health Strategies including the National Clinical Programme for Stroke as set out in the Programme for Government - Our Shared Future 2020.

Question No. 1316 answered with Question No. 1315.
