Concern over number of vacant consultant psychiatrist posts across West

Concerns are being raised over the number of vacant consultant psychiatrist posts across the Western region. 

The matter was raised at a meeting of the Health Forum West by Councillor John Connolly. 

It was admitted by officials that there are ongoing difficulties in the recruitment of consultant psychiatrists - with many posts are proving very difficult to fill. 

An assurance was given that a new focus group is looking at how certain regions are being marketed as a place to work and live. 

Councillor Connolly is hopeful that will lead to results.
