In 2014, the Department spent €58,209 on advertisements in newspapers and other print media, mainly to promote awareness of new schemes or public consultations, in addition to posting updates to and using social media (@roinnslainte). No advertisements were placed on radio, television or through social media. Figures for 2015 are being compiled and I will forward those on to the Deputy when they are available.

I have also 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 up the matter.
