Improvements on the way for sexual assault unit in Letterkenny

Fears about the future of the Sexual Assault Treatment Unit in Letterkenny have been allayed after Saolta confirmed a third Clinical Nurse Specialist has been recruited.

A recent report published by the National Sexual Assault Treatment Unit highlighted staffing issues which had led to concerns.

In a statement, Saolta confirms the new person has been appointed, and will undertake specialist training in September before beginning work at the Letterkenny unit.

Approval has also been given for new accommodation for the unit, and these premises are currently undergoing refurbishment.
