To ask the Minister for Health the average waiting time, mean and median, for an orthopaedic inpatient treatment in the Saolta University Health Care Group; if he will confirm if the Saolta University Health Care Group has the necessary specialist personnel required to carry out orthopaedic spinal surgery; if not, when will this situation be rectified; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

As this is a service matter, I have asked the HSE to respond to you directly. If you have not received a reply from the HSE within 15 working days please contact my Private Office and my officials will follow the matter up.
