290. Mr. Gregory asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Health and Children further to Parliamentary Question No. 387 of 5 October 2004, his views on the reason the reply received from the Rotunda Hospital to the referenced  question contained inaccurate and misleading information; the further reason the persons concerned were obliged to have the reply amended by means of an application made under the Freedom of Information Act 1997; in view of that and the information sought by the persons in relation to the parliamentary question, the reason the persons were refused treatment on 27 February 2002 and again on 20 April 2003; and if arrangements will be made to facilitate the correction of inaccuracies in the person’s medical record without requiring them to go through the freedom of information process.

Ms Harney:The Deputy’s question relates to the provision of services at a private clinic attached to the Rotunda Hospital. My Department requested the former Eastern Regional Health Authority, ERHA, to investigate issues relating to the case which had been raised by the Deputy. As the functions of the ERHA have since transferred to the Health Service Executive my Department has now requested its parliamentary affairs division to arrange to have the matter further examined, and to have a reply issued directly to the Deputy.
