Department of Health
1162. To ask the Minister for Health his views on whether it is appropriate that ambulances are coming from as far away as Rathkeale in response to emergency calls from patients in Limerick city; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [63162/22]
In line with the overall strategic direction, the NAS does not operate a station-based deployment system, but instead uses “dynamic deployment” on a national basis. Dynamic deployment allows staff in the HSE’s National Emergency Operations Centre to see all available resources and match them with service demand requirements in real time.
I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond to the Deputy with any further information they may have in relation to the Deputy's specific question.
