Ba mhaith liom ceist a chur ar an Aire Sláinte. What are the Minister's plans with regard to the recruitment and retention of general practitioners, GPs? A well-run general practitioner practice in Bandon, which has a large client list and a start-of-the-art computer system, which has advertised two GP posts has received no applications. Thirty years ago, a vacancy in this practise attracted 70 applications. There are many problems when the town of Bandon cannot attract one application for a very good GP practice. I would like to know the Minister's plans in regard to GP recruitment.
