2001. To ask the Minister for Health the estimated level of additional funding that will be needed to cover the cost of Covid-19 recovery for organisations delivering services to persons with disabilities in 2022; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [36085/21]
2107. To ask the Minister for Health the estimated additional funding that will need to be allocated to organisations delivering services to persons with disabilities for Covid-19 related costs in 2022, by capital and resource funding and CHO in tabular form; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [36546/21]
I propose to take Questions Nos. 2001 and 2107 together.
As the Deputy will be aware, the Covid-19 pandemic continues to present challenges to the delivery of health services, including in relation to those organisations delivering specialist disability services.
The level of funding that will be required to meet the Covid-19 related costs of organisations which provide specialist disability services is a matter which will be determined in the context of the 2022 Estimates Process, and the 2022 Capital Planning Process, if appropriate.
