Failures in the South Kerry CAMHS service were inevitable due to the inattention and underfunding of critical and mental health services in Ireland.

That's according to the Irish Medical Organisation.

A report published this week found 46 children were 'significantly harmed' after being prescribed inappropriate medication, in South Kerry CAMHS.

The Irish Medical Organisation says the inability of the health system, including CAMHS, to recruit enough consultants directly contributed to this failure in the provision of care.

The IMO is calling for a review to seriously address what it calls the fundamental problems in health care provision, including workforce planning, recruitment, and support services for medication management.
