Department of Health and Children
Home Help Service
The Health Act 2004 provided for the Health Service Executive, which was established on 1 January 2005. Under the Act, the executive has the responsibility to manage and deliver, or arrange to be delivered on its behalf, health and personal social services. This includes responsibility for the provision of the home help service in County Wexford. Accordingly, my Department has requested the chief officer for the executive's south-eastern area to investigate the matter raised and to reply direct to the Deputy.
