  • Written Question on decision to destroy all heel prick tests – Thomas Pringle TD
    matter Thomas Pringle T D For WRITTEN answer on Tuesday 26th March 2013 REPLY I have requested that the HSE hold off on the destruction of the so called Guthrie Cards cards which contain blood samples from children born in Ireland dating back to 1984 I have asked for the delay amid concern over the effectiveness of a communication campaign to alert the general public to the issue I have asked that the delay give time for an expert group to consider the matter further The newborn screening cards taken between 1984 and 2002 were retained without the informed consent of the parents or guardians of the children There is no written consent from parents for the retention or use of these newborn screening cards taken between 1984 and 2002 for research or other purposes The Data Protection Commissioner had ruled that the cards should be destroyed by the HSE to comply with a ruling from the Data Protection Commissioner that the indefinite retention of newborn screening cards breached the Data Protection Acts 1998 and 2003 The HSE has been running a campaign to allow parents of children born between 1984 and 2002 who wish to donate their child s newborn screening card for research to have the card returned to them They can then donate them for research purposes It was intended that the retrieval procedure will begin after the ending of the campaign but public awareness appears to be low The length of time it could take for retrieval will depend on how many cards have to be returned however no material will be destroyed before all requests have been processed In the wake of mounting concern from a range respected bodies about the potential value into the future of the loss of the material and in the

    effect from the 1st of January 2009 Under this scheme a person who is ordinarily resident in the State qualifies for a medical card as long as their gross income does not exceed the means test income limit The income limit for a single person is presently 700 per week The relevant income limit for a couple is 1 400 per week The standard procedure for the review of medical cards for person aged 66 years or older is that their medical card will be reviewed every 4 years In the interest of fairness between medical cardholders it is important that all people aged 70 or over are treated in a like manner by the HSE The Primary Care Reimbursement Office PCRS has confirmed that medical cards are not cancelled without notice The PCRS notifies all medical card holders by letter three months in advance of the renewal date of their eligibility for a medical card or when a review is due A further reminder letter is sent to card holders who have failed to return their renewal form a month prior to the card expiry date If no contact is made by a client with the Central Office within this period their medical card will expire The Central Office makes every effort to contact clients In a small number of cases a client may not receive the renewal notice due to having changed address When notified of such cases the Central Office extends the person s eligibility for a sufficient period to allow them to complete and submit a renewal Any medical cardholder undergoing a review for a renewed medical card who genuinely engages with the HSE in that review will not have their entitlement withdrawn before the review is complete regardless of the expiry date shown on their

    ensure that persons are not at a disadvantage and if he will ensure that the replacement or alternative scheme will address the needs of all recipients equally nationwide Thomas Pringle T D REPLY I understand that the work of the Review Group to review Mobility Allowance and Motorised Transport Grant is nearing completion The final report of the Review Group which will include consideration of the wider issue of accessible transport will be presented to Government in the coming weeks On Wednesday 12th June the Government decided to extend payments of Mobility Allowance by the Health Service Executive to those currently in receipt for a further number of months pending establishment of new statutory provisions to support the mobility needs of people with severe disabilities on the basis that this will prevent hardship and on an interim basis alleviate stress anxiety and uncertainty among a vulnerable group in society The Government is very conscious of the needs of people with a disability who have relied on individual payments of Mobility Allowance to support their independence and will take all of this into consideration when making a decision on future arrangements Following detailed consideration of the Interim Report of the Review Group the Government has decided that new statutory provisions will be established to provide individual payments to people with severe disabilities who require additional income to address the costs of their mobility needs The Government has agreed that an inter departmental group chaired by the Department of the Taoiseach will now be asked to develop detailed proposals for the operation of the new scheme or schemes including eligibility criteria and administrative arrangements and should report back to Government by October The existing position regarding the Motorised Transport Grant remains as before i e the scheme remains closed The inter departmental
