HSE to meet with concerned families next Monday

Families in need of mental health and respite care are to meet with the HSE next Monday.

It follows the announcement that a new part time consultant psychiatrist has been appointed to the Child and Adult Mental Health Services in the North West.

Continued fears over the cutback in Solas Respite services offered in Sligo will be raised by angry parents who have told Ocean FM they feel ignored by the HSE.

The meeting which was set up by the HSE is to take place in Sligo and parents hope to have their concerns about services heard.

Speaking on their behalf Sinn Fein councillor Thomas Healy says they are aiming to bring solutions rather than more problems to the HSE.
