Written Answers. - Nursing Home Subventions.

  627. Mr. Durkan asked the Minister for Health and Children if and when an increased subvention or transfer to Maynooth Community Hospital will be offered to a person (details supplied) in County Kildare; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [12129/04]

  Mr. Callely: As the Deputy will be aware, the provision of health services in the Kildare area is, in the first instance, the responsibility of the South Western Area Health Board acting under the aegis of the Eastern Regional Health Authority. My Department has, therefore, asked the chief executive of the authority to investigate the matter raised by the Deputy and reply direct to him as a matter of urgency.
