Psychiatric supports for older people in Dungloe suspended

Dungloe Hospital

It's reported that no new patients are to be accepted at the psychiatric clinic for older people at Dungloe District Hospital. Existing patients will, its understood, still be seen.

Cllr Michael Mac Giolla Easbuig says he's been told the service has been temporarily curtailed as a resuilt of sick leave, but says there are very clear similarities between this and the loss of ante-natal services a year ago, services which have not been restored.

He's seeking clarification of the current situation from the HSE........
