  130. Mr. Hayes asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Health and Children the reason three persons (details supplied) in County Tipperary who completed a health care assistant’s course at Waterford Regional Hospital and have attained a FETAC level-two certificate, are not having their qualification recognised, in view of the sacrifices they made to participate in the course and are employed as multi-skilled personnel; and the reason taxpayers money was spent on the course if the qualification was not required.

  Ms Harney: The Deputy’s question relates to human resource management issues within the Health Service Executive. As these are matters for the executive under the Health Act 2004, my Department has requested the parliamentary affairs division of the executive to arrange to have them investigated and to have a reply issued directly to the Deputy.
