Minister for Health (Mr. Noonan,: Information on Michael Noonan  Zoom on Michael Noonan  Limerick East): The Southern Health Board is responsible for the delivery of health services in its functional area. The board is aware that the transport arrangements for patients from St. Finian's Hospital who travel to St. Mary of the Angels, Beaufort to avail of its services ceased in 1996. The board is committed to the provision of alternative transport arrangements and is currently pursuing a number of options with a view to reinstating the service as soon as possible.
