401. Deputy Maureen O'Sullivan asked the Minister for Health if there is a contract in place for chemists who are involved in the dispensing of methadone; if the Irish College of General Practitioners still accredits level 2 training for methadone prescribing; if doctors can work in more then one location; and if there is a restriction on the number of patients seen by level 1 and level 2 doctors.  [2422/15]


Minister for Health (Deputy Leo Varadkar):  As these are service matters, they have been referred to the Health Service Executive for attention and direct reply to the Deputy.


If the Deputy has not received a reply from the HSE within 15 working days he should contact my Private Office and they will follow up the matter with them.
