Adult psychology services in the County under threat – BREEN

June 16th, 2009 - Pat Breen

Fine Gael’s Deputy Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs and Clare T.D. Pat Breen has today warned the HSE that any decision to terminate the employment of 3 full-time adult psychologists in the County will have a long term detrimental affect on development of the Adult psychology services in this County and is also not in the best long term interest of the patients themselves.

“The Three psychologists involved are doing a great job. They have built up a great relationship with their clients and have developed a level of trust which cannot be replaced by employing psychologists on a part-time basis.”

“I would appeal to the HSE to have a re-think and base their decision on the long-term development of the Adults involved and not on monetary considerations.”
