I propose to take Questions Nos. 639 and 752 together.

I wish to advise that the HSE's National Clinical Programme (NCP) for Stroke final draft National Stroke Strategy 2021-2026 was presented at the HSE Chief Clinical Officer (CCO) Clinical Forum at its meeting last July 2021 and was subsequently clinically approved by the Forum, following some minor changes.

The HSE advise that the strategy is now progressing for implementation and consideration is being given through the HSE 2022 National Service Planning process for funding opportunities, looking at alignment, synergy and integration with other current significant HSE programmes of work such as Enhanced Community Care, National Integrated Care Programme for Older People (NICPOP) and so forth. This will ensure that service delivery requirements outlined in the Stroke Strategy are integrated with other programmes of work and will support the HSE National Service Plan for 2022.

I have asked the Health Service Executive to provide the detailed information sought by the Deputy and I will forward this information to him as soon as it is available.
