An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business
Different treatments are available in different countries. I imagine there are countries that do better than us and I am sure there are many more countries that do not do as well as us.

It is probably best if I ask the Minister for Health to give a more detailed reply because I do not have a briefing to hand.
