Deputy Niall Collins asked the Minister for Health and Children the plans the Health Service Executive has to provide extra capacity at a hospital (details supplied) in County Limerick. [29604/07]
Deputy Mary Harney Deputy Mary Harney
Deputy Mary Harney:The Government’s sustained high level of investment in healthcare has enabled the completion and commissioning of numerous new facilities in both the acute and the non-acute sectors. This year, overall capital funding of €546 million has been provided to the Health Service Executive.
Responsibility for the planning and management of capital projects in the health sector, including the development referred to in the Deputy’s question is a matter for the Health Service Executive under the Health Act 2004. Accordingly, my Department has requested the Parliamentary Affairs Division of the Executive to arrange to have the matter investigated and to have a reply issued directly to the Deputy.
