« BackSubmission made for additional funding for primary health care posts in Kerry

A submission has been made to Government for additional primary health care posts for the Kerry and Cork Community Healthcare organisation.

This funding submission includes provision for speech and language therapists.


The Health Service Executive says all primary care clients are seen by speech and language therapists within four months.

There are twelve primary care speech and language therapists in the county with 345 patients on the waiting list.

Three staff were recently recruited to replace employees who had left.
