New Mental Health unit accepts first patients

This week witnessed patients being transferred from the old St Columba’s facility in Sligo into the new mental health unit at Sligo University Hospital.


There are 25 new beds available there and there is no doubt it will be a dramatic improvement in mental health services in the county and surrounding counties.


Sligo Leitrim TD, Martin Kenny says the new facility is a big plus when it comes to mental health care in the North West.
