Department of Health and Children
Health Service Report
Question 229: To ask the Minister for Health and Children if she has received a copy of the Health Service Executive Cystic Fibrosis Working Group report; the timescale for the implementation of its recommendations; and if she will publish the report. [18814/07]
I have not seen the report referred to by the Deputy. The Health Service Executive established a Working Group to undertake a detailed review of cystic fibrosis services. The Group was asked to review the current configuration and delivery of services to persons with cystic fibrosis in Ireland. I understand that the Group has completed its work.
The publication of the report and the time scale for the implementation of its recommendations are a matter for the Executive. Therefore, my Department has requested the Parliamentary Affairs Division of the Executive to arrange to have the matter investigated and to have a reply issued directly to the Deputy.
