258. Dr. Twomey asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Health and Children the reason her Department has not published a complete health statistics report since 2002; the contact details and the person who is responsible for this exercise; if it is the Health Service Executive or her Department; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

Ms Harney Ms Harney
Ms Harney: The report on health statistics is  published at three-yearly intervals. The report for 2002 was made available in February 2003 and the report for 2005 is now due for publication. This report is now in the final stages of preparation and will be published in the next few weeks. A number of updated tables are available on the Department’s website and further statistical data can be obtained directly from the information unit in my Department. My Department holds responsibility for the production of the health statistics report but this is currently under review in the context of the implementation of the health service reform programme.
