Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation

I thank the Deputy for his question. It has been agreed with the HSE that there will be an assistant national director specifically for the child and adolescent mental health service, CAMHS, and that recruitment will be under way in the next two weeks. I am very pleased to have agreed that. It is very important, after the report and as a result of the Maskey report last year as well, that we have this post. The post is not just going to be one person; there will be four and a half whole-time equivalents working with this person. Recruitment will be under way in the next two weeks.
