Public Accounts Committee

Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (Resumed)

11:20 am

Mr. Paul Reid:

On recruitment, I mentioned earlier that we are continuously recruiting to the ambulance service. I mentioned the graduates. An extra 100 staff have gone into the National Ambulance Service since January 2020. We will continue to do that. An extra 50 have gone into the service this year already. There is a capacity review which the head of the ambulance service is conducting. He may have spoken to the Chairman during the week. He will bring that to me and the executive management team.
