I propose to take Questions Nos. 620 to 623, inclusive, together.

GP out-of-hours service providers are private organisations that are partially funded by the HSE. In the Mid-West region, the out-of-hours arrangements are discharged through Shannondoc.

As the issues raised are service matters, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond to the Deputy directly, as soon as possible.
