HSE urged to invest savings into mental health services

Letterkenny Sinn Fein Councillor Gerry Mc Monagle has welcomed indications from the HSE that they are to surrender some rental accommodation around Letterkenny, and transfer part of its services and staff to the St Conals Hospital Campus.

Cllr Mc Monagle claims more than a million euro is being paid in rent each year in Letterkenny alone, and that is worsened by the fact that the HSE owns five houses which are boarded up in the Sliabh Sneacht area.

He says money saved should be ploughed into mental health services in Donegal.
