Deputy Tony McLoughlin, who raised the issue, questioned the Minister for Health Simon Harris as to whether women in the north-west region, in particular in counties Sligo and Leitrim, “will have the continued access to a follow-up mammography at the hospital beyond 2019 and “the process involved in supplying the contract.”

Harris, in a written reply, said he had been advised that the contract for a mobile service “has been extended recently for a further 12 months.”

The contract for the service was awarded following a tendering process run by the HSE, he said.
