Public Accounts Committee

2020 Report of the Comptroller and Auditor General and Appropriation Accounts
Vote 38 - Health

9:30 am

Mr. Robert Watt:

I am not aware of the issue in any detail and so cannot say anything meaningful to the Deputy. If there is a delay, that will have the impacts the Deputy has mentioned, which could be quite serious for individuals and families. I will look at it and come back. I can see the difficulties a delay would lead to but I do not fully understand the cause of the delay. There might be a plan in place to deal with it in the HSE. I will not say anything because it might be putting something in place. I do not have the details.
