Dáil Eireann Debate
Dr. O'Hanlon: asked the Minister for Health if a letter from his Department was circulated to the health boards requesting them to collect money from consultants for the use of equipment for private patients in public hospitals; the amount to be collected from each health board; and the basis on which the calculation for each health board was made.
Minister for Health (Mr. B. Desmond): Such a letter was issued by my Department  on 5 February 1985 to the chief executive officer of each health board. The amount to be collected from consultants employed by each health board is as follows:
|Total for all Health Boards||423,000|
Factors, such as the relative numbers of beds and consultants, and the amount of income from private accommodation charges were taken into account in deciding on the amount to be collected by each health board.
