Questions (271)

Clare Daly

Question:

271. Deputy Clare Daly asked the Minister for Health if his attention has been drawn to the fact that CAMHS is advising parents to seek help privately for seriously ill children who are deemed to be high risk of self-harm; and if his attention has been further drawn to the fact that the waiting lists for private consultations are also over three months and in the case of high-risk children, including a child (details supplied), waiting three months is not an option in cases in which their conditions are immediately life threatening.

As this is a service matter I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond directly to the Deputy as soon as possible.
