Department of Health
191. To ask the Minister for Health if his attention has been drawn to the report on Roscommon health services detailing the large sums being returned to the Exchequer in previous years; if his Department sought to investigate the cause of underspends; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [41141/17]
I am familiar with the recently report published by the HSE referred to by the Deputy, including concerns around funding or other serious issues highlighted in the report. As the HSE has established an Implementation Team to follow through on the recommendations of this Report, I have referred the question to the Executive for a detailed reply to the Deputy. The Deputy can be rest assured that I, and the Department of Health, will continue to closely monitor the progress of the Implementation Team.
