Deputy Richard Bruton Deputy Richard Bruton
Deputy Richard Bruton asked the Minister for Health and Children if her attention has been drawn to the fact that since changes have been made in the supply arrangements for specialist stockings for persons with acute swelling, medical card holders are having difficulty in obtaining service for lack of trained nurses to do the required measurement for fittings as in the case of a person (details supplied) in Dublin 5.

Deputy Mary Harney Deputy Mary Harney
Deputy Mary Harney: The Deputy’s question relates to the management and delivery of health and personal social services, which are the responsibility of the Health Service Executive under the Health Act, 2004. It is a matter for the Executive to manage and deploy its human resources to best meet the requirements of its Annual Service Plan for the delivery of health and personal social services to the public. The Executive is the appropriate body to consider the matter raised by the Deputy. 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.
