The Minister was answering questions raised by Eugene Murphy in the Seanad today.

Staffing issues have delayed the rollout of later life psychiatric services at the E-Health Centre in Castelrea.

Minister for Mental Helath and Older People Mary Butler confirmed that a non-Consultant hospital doctor has taken up duties but an additional six posts are still undergoing recruitment.

It can currently take up to 50 weeks for backdated roles to be filled.
