From time to time the Health Service Executive is required to carry out investigations. Engagement of external expertise can be necessary in some circumstances. All Government Departments and Agencies funded from the Exchequer including the HSE, are obliged to comply with EU Directives and national guidelines on procurement. If the Deputy has specific concerns she wishes to raise, I would ask her to forward the details to my office for investigation.
