Question:

199 Ms O. Mitchell asked the Minister for Health and Children when he plans to implement the recommendations contained in the report of the joint review group on psychology; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [15083/02]

The report of the joint review group on psychological service in the health services was published in March 2002. I understand that, following a request received from my Department, the director of the health boards executive has undertaken to work with the directors of human resources in the health boards to develop an approach to facilitate the implementation of the report.
