In 2008, the HSE ran a recruitment campaign for physiotherapists which provided the health service with a significant number of candidates suitable for appointment. To date, 250 physiotherapists have been appointed from this panel and over 200 remain available for appointment. While the current panel would meet the forseeable recruitment needs for staff grade physiotherapists, the Executive is considering the possibility of running a new recruitment campaign at an appropriate time.
