Public Accounts Committee
Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (Resumed)
Mr. Paul Reid:
I will make a brief comment on 2019 and 2020. I can get the full figures but, certainly, any extra funding which would have been assigned would have related to Covid and the extra supports we would have had to put in due to Covid, with the various agreements. I will see if I can confirm the other increases but, certainly for 2020, extra expenditure was funded to GPs for out-of-hours services.
