As the Deputy is aware the management and delivery of health and social services are the responsibility of the Health Service Executive under the Health Act 2004. Accordingly, the Department referred your correspondence to the Health Service Executive for attention and direct reply. The Department asked to be kept informed by the Health Service Executive of the outcome of their investigation and a copy of the response that issued to the family has since been received by my Office.
