This is an issue on which the Department has been engaged closely with the Health Products Regulatory Authority, HPRA. The authority is broadly satisfied that where there are shortages, there are substitutes available, as per the two examples the Deputy just provided. If the Deputy would like to send me on the details with regard to medical cards covering what the doctor has prescribed as well as generic substitutes, I will certainly ask the Department to get back to her with a detailed response.
