St John of God Community Services (SJOGCS) agreed with the HSE that it would defer notice of its proposed exit from service provision on 1 October 2021.
The HSE and SJOGCS reached agreement on a process which aims to ensure the financial stability and sustainability and improved governance of the vital disability and mental health services provided across the country by SJOGCS.They will participate in a Sustainability Impact Assessment over the coming period.
As the Deputy's question relates to a service matter, I have arranged for the question to be referred to the HSE for direct reply to the Deputy as soon as possible.
