Some funding for psychology services in Roscommon region is withdrawn

The HSE confirms some funding for psychology services in the Roscommon region has been withdrawn.

According to the minutes of an internal meeting of HSE management, additional funding previously allocated on a once-off basis for psychology services was ceased in February.

In a statement, the HSE says this refers to once-off funding allocated to community healthcare west in 2018.

It adds this money wasn’t allocated in 2019 and therefore had to be withdrawn.

But Independent TD Michael Fitzmaurice is critical of the news.
