Psychiatric Waiting Lists Must be Cut Down

The long waiting lists for psychiatric consultation some over 12 months old in several areas of the country must be reduced urgently, it was claimed today.//

This fund had been set up to treat people who have been waiting the longest for treatment in the country’s public hospitals. Their treatment can be arranged in private hospitals in Ireland and Britain, or if need be even in other countries.

Mr Neville, the party’s health spokesman, said it was well known that dealing early with psychiatric and emotional difficulties was key to restoration of mental health.
