Disability Services Provision
706. To ask the Minister for Health if there is a clinical psychologist currently working at Mounthamilton House, Dundalk, County Louth; the current average waiting time for psychological assessment at the centre; his plans to put additional personnel in place; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [39961/20]
The Programme for Government, Our Shared Future, recognises the need to improve services for both children and adults with disabilities through better implementation and by working together across Government in a better way.
The Government commits to prioritising early diagnosis and access to services for children and ensuring that the most effective interventions are provided for each child, to guarantee the best outcomes.
As this is a service matter, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond to the deputy directly, as soon as possible.
