Department of Health
The subheads of the Health Vote which pertain to HSE expenditure are not itemised down to the level of individual CHOs or Acute Hospital Groups. In overall terms a surrender of €394.2m, was effected from the Health Vote at the end of 2021 and returned to the Exchequer.
Of this surrender €283.3m (€275.4m current and €7.9m capital) related to the Health Service Executive.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to identify how much of this pertained to individual CHOs or Acute Hospital Groups.
The Department of Health does not directly fund the Brothers of Charity. Under Section 38 of the 1970 Health Act funding is provided by the Health Service Executive. I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond to you directly in relation to this matter.
