124. Mr. McGuinness asked the Minister for Health and Children the reason proper physiotherapy is not being extended to a person (details supplied) in County Kilkenny; the reason a standing frame only and no assistance was provided for him in his home; and if his Department will provide the therapy, which proved to be successful in the past, at St. Luke's Hospital, Kilkenny. [16262/99]
Mr. Cowen Mr. Cowen
Minister for Health and Children (Mr. Cowen): The provision of physiotherapy services in any individual case is a matter for the relevant health board. Accordingly, I have referred the details of the case provided by the deputy to the chief executive officer of the South-Eastern Health Board and asked him to have the matter examined and reply directly to the Deputy.
