Question 202: To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Health and Children the reason an outpatients appointment in Wexford hospital cannot be given before 6 December 2006 to a person (details supplied) in County Wexford; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [13195/06]
The Deputy's question relates to the management and delivery of health and personal social services, which are the responsibility of the Health Service Executive under the Health Act 2004. Accordingly, my Department has requested the parliamentary affairs division of the executive to have a reply issued directly to the Deputy.
