Department of Health and Children
Question 271: To ask the Minister for Health and Children the number of medical card applications currently with the Health Service Executive west; the average time delay in issuing cards to persons involved; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [28173/10]
The information sought by the Deputy is not provided by the Health Service Executive to my Department as a matter of routine. Therefore, my Department has requested the Parliamentary Affairs Division of the Executive to arrange to address this matter and to have a reply issued directly to the Deputy.
